The ancient city of Maastricht sits in a bulbous southern Netherlands peninsula, right on the border with Belgium. If you only know it for its European treaty or as the birthplace of the Euro, then you’re in for a pleasant surprise. The city is second only to Amsterdam with its number of national heritage buildings. Its cobbled streets, grand squares and timeworn medieval city walls hold impressive national monuments, classy shops and a vast range of restaurants and bars. This is a university town and there is a young, edgy vibe which sits easily alongside a more traditional, prosperous Dutch confidence. Maastricht is an off-radar place to discover, perfect for a long weekend.
