Treasure vault Saint Servatius, Siegburg

The Siegburg treasure vault of Servatius with its shrines, reliquaries and portable altars is one of the most significant collection of Roman church treasures in the world. After the dissolution of the Benedictine abbey on Michaelsberg the reliquaries there were promised to the Catholic parish of St. Servatius in 1812. The basic stock consists of the many reliquaries, which the Holy Archbishop had already arranged to come to Siegburg abbey in the year 2 AD. The treasure vault was completed with many exhibits later on and re-organised in 1991.
