Welcome to Maastricht
Get the guide in your language
Home of cultural centres, art galleries, theatres, chic designer shops, fine restaurants and carnivals, Maastricht is a bustling city with a larger than life exuberance. A visit will invigorate the soul. Thoroughly cosmopolitan and a fortified university city lying alongside the great Maas river in south Holland, it offers visitors a great lifestyle, if only for a few days.
Take the chance to take canal trips, walk, visit attractions and admire its beautiful old buildings that line the historic sculpture-strewn streets in its heart that blend surprisingly well with the architectural whims of more modern planners in areas such as around the harbour.
