Opening times and viewings

Basilica and tower are generally open simultaneously. The Basilica can be visited free of charge and for this a booklet with a brief history and guided tour is available on loan.

The basilica can sometimes, contrary to the fixed opening times, be temporarily closed due to activities such as a funeral or organ tuning. A funeral is not published on the website!
