Maastricht is a charming old city with a great location in the southern part of the Netherlands. To begin your stay in Maastricht, just take a stroll through the cobblestone streets. While you're out, look inside the many churches, step into the quaint shops, and have a drink at an outside cafe. The main square in the city is the Vrijthof, and this is the heart of the city. The surrounding streets have an abundance of stores, cafes, and pubs. The Vrijthof is also the site of two beautiful churches. Nearby is the Markt, where markets are held every Friday. The VVV (tourist office) is in this vicinity and can provide maps, hotel reservations, and guided city tours.
