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 its turbulent and heroic past.
Maastricht is a congress and student city with universities, congress centres such as the MECC, theatre and fine arts academies and a conservatory. Especially the inner city has an enormous monumental value due to the 1590 listed buildings present. Its accessibility is excellent with good road, bus and rail links, as well as the modern Maastricht Aachen Airport.
The southern zest for life in Maastricht is contagious. Maastricht sparkles. There are countless restaurants, terraces and cafes, grand cafés and mainly French-influenced restaurants. Nowhere in the Netherlands will you find such an abundance of culinary options. Why not try the typical local specialties like cave mushrooms, Rommedoe cheese and asparagus. One more reason to plan a day trip to Maastricht is the shopping possibilities. Especially fashion, patisserie and antiques are well-represented in the city.
