A travel journal
to Maastricht by Pyra
Quote: The city where the Treaty of Europe was signed in 1992, at the very south of the Netherlands. Wedged between Belgium and Germany. Nearer to Brussels and Cologne then to Amsterdam. A small town with a well preserved historic heart. Worth a weekend visit!
Now, if only smoking was forbidden here (or at least separated), it would be a real perfect, simple, enjoyable place...

People from the rest of the Netherlands travel to Maastricht for this since Maastricht is known in the Netherlands as the most Bourgondic city anyway, with lots of fine restaurants!

This happens each year in March. And if you don't have the money for real art, just going to TEFAF to watch the crowd is enough fun by itself.
MECC Congress Center
The area was the social underbelly of Maastricht until the ‘60s, when it was renovated. Its medieval style and atmosphere houses all the famous names now.
