Probably most of you have already heard something about this city due to its well known University or because of the European Maastricht Treaty, however, this place has more to offer beyond politics and campus. Maastricht is one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands. Its charming streets are surrounded by antique buildings and cafés full of nice people.
What to see
In this square was beheaded William de la Marck. T
he visitor can enjoy a nice waffle while visiting the St. Servatius Basilica which is nowadays surrounded by cute cafés .
A huge park close to the old wall who surrounded the city in the ancient times. It is nice to have a walk in it or even to have a noon picnic.
Heelport (The door of hell)
Located at the old city walls it is the oldest city gate in the Netherlands. If the weather is good I would recommend you to walk from Nolenspark to the Heelport. The path is really nice and peaceful.
The antique buildings,the people, the parks, the terraces… It reminded me to the city of Amsterdam. Furthermore I would recommend you to have a walk among the old city and to try some tasty waffles!!
Finally I would like to talk about a charming place. This mill was created in the VII century and, although it is still working, it belongs now to the city of Maastricht and it harbors a brewery and a bakery. Sitting in front of the mill in the small street where it is located could be a peaceful moment for the tourist.
Do not miss the chance to visit this historical place!!
