This historic university town really clings onto its past. By stepping out onto the cobblestone paths which adorn the centre, one really feels as if they were stepping back over 500 years.
The Basilica of Saint Servatius is one of the oldest of its kind in the world and houses a sizeable amount of Catholic treasures on display for the whole world to see. Another must see is the fortification of St. Pieter which guarded Maastricht for over 300 years, now open to the public you can root around the ancient walls and get a taste of the soldiers’ lives from the 1400s.After working up a hunger, pass by Livin’ Room on Heggenstraat where they offer high-quality cuisine at more-than-reasonable prices.
No one knows Maastricht like the natives, so make sure to hire a local photographer for your trip to show you the best of what this riverside city has to offer.
