  • We have a combination card intended for the fort and the Northern underground. At each tour of about one hour an engaging guide. Skilled, experienced and good storytellers. Warm attention for each participant. Many new interesting facts heard. Everything in a very relaxed manner. Moreover, it is a stone's throw from the city centre of Maastricht. Definitely worth it for young and old.

  • Only accessible with a guide; our tour was in English. Be careful to wear the right shoes and clothes as the floor is uneven end it is only 11 degrees inside.  more »
