Trips to Maastricht
Maastricht is a city where anything goes: coffee shops and the annual carnival receive the same attention as luxury restaurants and religious processions. Walk the bars to join the locals, most of them, fun and affectionate students. You will always hear them use the term "gezellig", a typical Dutch word, to refer to a pleasant meeting with friends.
The Maastricht region, a mountainous territory compared to the rest of the regions, was already inhabited by hunter-gatherer tribes before the Romans settled in the XNUMXst century BC. The medieval fortifications, the Spanish-style cathedrals and the French-inspired love of good cuisine demonstrate the various influences this city has had.
To explore it, the best option is to do it on foot, by bus or by bicycle. Start your tour in the center of the city, just west of the river. In Vrijthof, the main square, is the magnificent Basilica of San Servando with its treasures, its cloister and its gardens. Then head southeast to Helpoort, the oldest gate in the Netherlands, dating from the 13th century and still standing.
Continue to the end of the Grote Straat street (big street) to find the VVV Maastricht resort. Join a guided tour to explore the fortifications path, a labyrinth of over 20.000 underground tunnels in the caves of Mount San Pedro dug under a fortress located south of the city.
The city of Maastricht is strategically located next to the Meuse River and 2,5 hours drive from Amsterdam. To go there, you can take the train or even a flight. When you have finished seeing the city, go by bicycle or car to the castles or walk the hills that surround the city. If you go to the southeast, you can stop at the exact point where Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands come together.
