  • Well worth the walk around the city wall to see this enormous ancient gate. Try to follow one of the city walks from here and there is plenty to see. 
  • In Maastricht you stumble to speak about the historical (often even Roman) buildings and you also have a spectacular new city area. However, the Helpoort speaks to me because they are so beautiful in the Green! As Avid nature photographer you need here are, on the Helpoort and the other remains of the ancient Roman walls, you will find still wall lizards (pretty tame), which you can capture on glorious image. I don't think there in the Benelux, and certainly not in Netherlands, 10 more places where this rare animal yet!

  • Interesting tourist destination. Nice to have someone local explain this entire area.
  • Mooi stukje grasveld/park er omheen. Goeie uitleg
  • Ok
  • Nice rest of city walls and towers.
  • Old city gate. You can be equally in the Tower poking around where a tiny museum.
