Maastricht is a very pretty small city with wonderful restaurants, lively cafés, and interesting shops - it is a very agreeable place to relax and enjoy the hospitality for which Limburg is famous. The town is situated in what might be termed the Dutch mountains, an area with rolling hills, Flemish castles, and many walking trails - it is also an excellent base for exploring other towns and indeed other countries. Follow the Maas for half an hour to reach Liège, or drive half an hour in another direction to Aachen, Charlemagne's town, where the cathedral has the best mosaics north of Ravenna. The larger cities of Brussels, Antwerp, Düsseldorf and Cologne, each with a distinctive atmosphere and much to offer, are all about an hour from Maastricht. Explore the area and come back to the comfort of your own base, or just enjoy the many possibilities within walking distance - either way you'll have a wonderful time.
Fully equipped apartment, close to center of Maastricht and most university buildings.
