Maastricht

(4.2/5 based on 7,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, nature, historic sites

Culinary Capital of the Netherlands

With 1,677 national heritage sites, Maastricht is a town rich in history. As one of the Netherlands' oldest towns, visitors come here for the ancient ruins and extensive cave system. Much of this city has been protected and contains architecture dating back to the 13th and 14th centuries. Maastricht is made up of five neighborhoods, each with its own particular features, history, and personality. This southern city has a special character, influenced by its borders with both Belgium and Germany. Its  culture is reinforced by Limburgish, the language spoken in Maastricht and unique to the province of Limburg. As a university town, Maastricht attracts a large international body of residents that bring diversity and a youthful energy, but this does not take away from the romantic feel of this old city.
