Adorable Little Town – Maastricht

Tags:

People who want to enjoy a little citybreak in Netherlands and at the same time see something else than just Amsterdam I would reccomend Maastricht.

It´s a 2.5 hours away from Amsterdam and the train ticket is about 30€. Maastricht has lot to offer, many shops and restaurant. The best part of the city is, that it´s quite small so you wont get lost and while you are shopping you can enjoy the old town it self. There are many cathedrals, fortresses and old buildings all around the city so you don´t have to go elsewhere to search them.

Adorable town with great surroundings and friendly people. If you’re into history or architecture at all, this is the place to be! The high-speed train Thalys from Paris to Cologne operates via Aachen, so if you’re on your way to one of those cities, make sure to step out of the train in Aachen before you continue any further. The border of Belgium and Holland is just a short bus ride away too and because of all the commuters, the connections to places like Vaals are really good.

The Art of Living in Maastricht, the Netherlands

My boyfriend happen to be on business trip in Maastricht, and very lucky of him to be visiting this amazing city.

Maastricht is the sunniest city in Holland. It is a splendid fortified city of Roman origin set on the river Maas. With its location in the most southern part of Holland it is the perfect hub for excursions to Belgium, France, and Germany.

Maastricht is known as the oldest town in Holland and its history stretches back to 50 BC when the Romans set up camp on the banks of the Maas river. Fortification walls still partly surround the city and are part of a magnificent city walk. One monumental hallmark of its wealthy history is the Basilica of Saint Servatius, a medieval cruciform basilica, the core of which dates from 1000 BC! Crypts from the 11th and 12th century have graves of Saint Servatius, the first bishop of Holland. The cathedral was considerably enlarged in the 14th and 15th century and currently hosts an important collection of religious art objects.
