The capital of Limburg is a picturesque and lively city. Its Mosan-style stone houses, sections of medieval wall and pedestrianised streets create an attractive backdrop, enlivened by its huge squares teeming with café terraces. Located at the junction of three countries, Maastricht, a place famous for its political treaty, has several identities which encompass the southern charms of its carnival and its impressive gastronomy, as part of which local dishes are to the fore.
