  • Enjoys a unique location, the old-Dominicanerkerk. Described by The Guardian as the most beautiful Bookstore in the world. In the middle of city centre Maastricht, which also serves delicious coffee to get is from Coffeelovers.

  • Definitely worth it to not only the books, but also towards the ceiling. The structure of the Church is respected and you feel attracted to to take a look in all corners. You might almost forget to buy books, but that was not really the intent of us.

  • With the buggy walk around between the books in a unique location. Love the hand on the cut because before you know it you have a stack of books that you want to buy. Great!

  • Unique bookstore converted from a church and it is in world's top 10 bookstores list. Plenty of options for dutch and foreign language books, magazines and some LPs. Also has a cafe to chill with this nice ambiance.
  • This was a great place to visit. Wonderful to sit in and soak up the atmosphere. The books are a little pricey. They do have a small English section.
  • Probably the best use of a cathedral that is no longer being used..... a beautiful book store. I was in awe. It was SPECTACULAR!
  • Fantastic bookstore in a wonderful ancient church, with preserved glass windows and some frescoes on the ceiling. Good choice of books in a wide range of subjects over two floors. There is also a nice cafe in one of the corners with good coffee and desserts.
  • Every time I get visitors in Maastricht I take them here first and it is always a success. A must-see in Maastricht and definitely one of the most beautiful bookstores in the world. I do feel like the selection is a little lacking and there isn't enough personnel to advise you on specific requests, but I've been told that the Coffeelovers inside is really good. In short: don't skip this when you come visit
