The Doudou route
The shrine houses the body of St Waltrude. Her relics were kept in different shrines over the years. Nowadays, the shrine housing the relics shares the same neo-Gothic style as the head reliquary. This shrine, which dates back to 1887, is made from gilded brass decorated with precious and semi-precious stones, enamel and cabochon. It was designed by J Wilmotte, a Liege-based goldsmith. Reminiscent of the shape of a church, it displays important figures: Christ and the Virgin and Child (on the cogwheels), St Waltrude accompanied by her daughters on one side, and St Vincent and his sons on the other, with each group surrounded by six apostles (along the two sides).
