Maastricht is well known to art connoisseurs thanks to The European Fine Art Fair, but the Dutch city—one of the oldest in the Netherlands—has much to offer to travelers of all interests. As one art world eminence and regular visitor says: “Maastricht is an utterly charming small city with a lovely historic center, wonderful restaurants and shops, and a wide rushing river cutting it in two.” In addition, the city has benefited from recent renovations and some areas, including the Market and Central Square, are now almost entirely pedestrian.

    Essential Maastricht

    Maastricht is a haven for art lovers, but the city’s offerings can fill a robust itinerary for any interest. Here is just one example of what our destination experts can create for you.

    • Day 1

      Devastated after WWII, the city of Maastricht lacked funds to tear down its old buildings and rebuild, so many of the Medieval buildings remain. The city’s plethora of ateliers and boutiques are housed in these gorgeous, historic buildings that reflect the area’s heritage. Spend the day getting to know the city by shopping, sampling the hot spot cafés and stopping at art galleries.

    • Day 2

      Today, learn more about the history of Maastricht with an expert-guided tour through the city. The guide can also place an emphasis on art, taking you through the most important museums. In the afternoon, relax at your hotel before dinner at an Indagare-recommended restaurant.

    • Day 3

      Visitors to Maastricht with a day or two spare should explore the surrounding cities, such as Aachen, Germany and Ghent, Belgium. Alternatively, Indagare can arrange a food tour of the city’s best restaurants or a cooking class with a local family or chef.
