The good life in Maastricht, the capital of the province of Limburg, becomes clear when you visit this magnificent city. The atmosphere of 20 centuries of history is almost tangible in the typical old town. Narrow cobbled streets, churches, monuments, mansions, treasuries and impressive facades make Maastricht a blissful place to stay and enjoy. The remains of the city walls and subterranean fortifications tell you the history of the turbulent and warlike past.

Maastricht is a convention and student city with universities, convention centers, the MECC, Universities of applied sciences,  (theater)academies and a conservatory. Especially the inner city has an enormous monumental value due to the 1590 present objects. The accessibility is excellent with good road, rail and bus links and the modern Maastricht Aachen Airport.

The southern zest for life in Maastricht is contagious. Maastricht sparkles. There are countless restaurants, terraces and cafes, grandcafés and mainly French-influenced restaurants. Nowhere in the Netherlands you will find such an abundance of culinary possibilities. The typical specialties like cave mushrooms and asparagus you will find everywhere. One more reason to plan a day to Maastricht is the shopping possibilities. Especially fashion, patisserie and antiques are well represented in the city. Maastricht, something to treat yourself with.
