Stroll your way through the prettiest city in the Netherlands.
Standing at the crossroads between the Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium, Maastricht is arguably the most beautiful of all Dutch cities. Founded by the Romans in 50 BC, it’s also one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands. Yet it’s Maastricht’s more recent history that gained the city its international fame. The Maastricht Treaty that formally established the European Union was signed there in 1992, turning Maastricht into the ultimate symbol of the newly founded European Union. But even if it weren’t for its historical significance, Maastricht would still be worth a visit for its grand squares, impressive churches, well-preserved city walls, and exquisite merchant houses.
The best way to take in the beauty of Maastricht is to walk along the streets of what’s reportedly one of the most pedestrian-friendly cities in Europe. From Market Square’s 17th century buildings to the ultra-modern construction that houses the Bonnefanten Museum, Maastricht’s diverse architectural influences are omnipresent. Equally diverse is the city’s superb food scene with delicacies ranging from Michelin-star dishes to oven-fresh traditional treats at the local bakeries. For a unique experience that will help you relax and unwind, head to nearby Valkenburg, a picture-perfect spa town that lies just 13 kilometers east of Maastricht.
