Welcome in the Netherlands, Welcome in  Maastricht

Experience the city

Visiting Maastricht is an experience that you take with you, that you share, and use to inspire others. The city is divided into different districts, each with its own unique character and charm.

Check the website of Visit Maastricht for more information.

For the guest of our conference there is a nice social program to discover the city and the area.


You can feel it by the city wall, over the cobblestones – which we call ‘kinderköpkes– and, over the St Servatius Bridge... Maastricht’s history!

Maastricht was not built in a day. As you walk through Maastricht, you are sure to experience its welcoming vibes and the sights and sounds of the city. You also get an immediate sense of its rich history. To this day, you can still see the beautiful city walls, old buildings, and characteristic cobblestones. Did you know that Maastricht used to be a Roman settlement? They were early to recognize the benefits of living close to the water.
