  • The whole place gets incredibly muddy after rain and without rain boots I do not recommend to go there. In general, it is just a nice place to visit but not a must-see.  more »
  • The Fronts park is located on the outskirts of the town, a bit hidden behind the buildings along the States singel. The entire park consists of two parts, on both sides of the Cabergerweg; both include still intact remains of the forward vesedigingswerken of the old fortress city of Maastricht. The ZW-part, high Fronts or the line of Du Moulin, is the 18th century ' dry ' part and is characterized by high brick walls, that are connected to the underground system of corridors, the Casemates. Special here is that the red light district the home place for wall lizards, a species that occurs nowhere else in Netherlands. And with a bit of luck also graze a sheep herd. NE of the Cabergerweg are the low fronts, also called New Wyk Fronts. The red light district located along the water date back to the beginning of the 19th century and are significantly lower. Currently, these low Fronts restored and the whole area a nature park in the downtown area adjacent to Belvedere. However, there is still some work to do to the accessibility and the Interior of this park. Historical assessment no different than ' excellent ', in order to increase the attractiveness and the experience is much to happen, perhaps a new review in a few years as a whole can earn this rating. But if you are in Maastricht, the park is a 10-minute walk from the Vrijthof and admission is free.

  • With a skilled guide mochte we here a guided walk. If you like military heritage implies then you should definitely go check it out. Specifically how Maastricht was defended. There are many stones processed. Not all is still present, but still give these locations a fine image and you don't have much imagination to understand how it look so half 19th century from must have seen.
