Maastricht The Essential
Recommended
At the junction of three countries, Maastricht, famous for the Treaty, holds sway over the "boot" of Dutch Limburg and is its capital. It is separated from Belgium by the Albert canal. The town is located on the Meuse and is different from the rest of the country with its houses in Meuse stone, its undulating surroundings and its southern character. Its bon viveur's soul is shown by the number of restaurants and cafés, its pedestrianised streets and its annual carnival.
