4 not-to-be-missed historic sites in Maastricht

Small Dutch town, Maastricht is, despite itself, a far-flung place of Netherlands which is divided in 2 by the river Meuse: on one side industrial, on the other a historic heartland. In this short article, we’re going to talk more specifically about 4 historical sites.



The Dominicanen bookshop

Since autumn 2006, the Dominicanen bookshop (formerly Selexyz Dominicanen and Polare Maastricht) has been magnificently housed in Maastricht’s centuries-old Dominican church. Here you can enjoy both the architecture and the variety of books. And it’s no coincidence that it’s considered to be the most beautiful bookshop in the world!

The Vrijthof 

Right in the heart of the city, you’ll find the Vrijthof. This superb square is famous for hosting summer concerts by André Rieu, the Preuvenemint gastronomic event, and Maastricht Magique. But for most of the year, you can wander around the square at your leisure, enjoying its charm and special features.

The Gasterie VeerMestreech


The Gasterie VeerMestreech is located in the heart of Maastricht, in the former convent of the Ursuline Sisters of the Roman Union. This immediately creates the right atmosphere: as soon as you walk through the door, you exchange the hectic life of the city for the tranquillity of the monastery.
