Teseum’s treasure chamber: stunning art objects

Tongeren is home to a unique array of religious art treasures, laden with centuries-old gold and silver. Much of its collection is on the Flemish Masterpieces list. Teseum’s newly renovated interior is also splendid.

A visit to Teseum is an unforgettable experience. The 12th century Romanesque Tower brings you to the elevated world of the attic cloister. Once there, musical intermezzos transport you back to medieval Tongeren. After your visit to this treasure chamber, you can enjoy the heavenly Romanesque cloister and surrounding gardens, a hidden gem in the city centre.

There are also exciting multimedia routes for young visitors that fit perfectly with the audio guide (iPod) for adults.

Archeological site at Teseum: underground treasures

The citizens of Tongeren have been working hard to build their city for many generations. Remains of the walls and foundations will be open to visitors in Teseum’s archaeological site from 1 September 2018. These ancient stones tell a story that stretches back over 2000 years: the history of Tongeren’s city, its inhabitants and their church. The story begins with the Roman conquerors and is still being written today. This is one of the most important archaeological sites in all of Europe and an absolute must-see.

There are also exciting multimedia routes for young visitors aged between 6-12 and 12-16 that fit perfectly with the audio guide (iPod) for adults.
