Wyck

quartier-sortir-maastricht

Situated between the railway station and the Meuse, this district is where modernity meets tradition. It’s here that you’ll find the most modern shops, hotels, bars and restaurants rubbing shoulders with small, older bazaars.

To say the least, Wyck is the perfect place to take your mind off things and get to know Maastricht.

Where to stay in Maastricht as a family with children

Sint Pieter

quartier-loger-famille-maastricht

This is the ideal place to spend time with your family. You reach it by crossing the city park on the way to the Sint Pietersberg. This leafy district is an opportunity to reconnect with nature and enjoy a little serenity away from the noise of the city centre. There’s so much to see and do in Sint Pietersberg!

  • Discover the ENCI quarry and meet the local animals.
  • A walk on Mount Sint Pieter would be a most rewarding exercise.

Areas to avoid in Maastricht

The district to avoid in Maastricht would be the northern part, because of the coldness that characterises it and distances it completely from the old town.

We also really disliked the area near the canal, further west, because of the blatant lack of light. The only positive thing here is the gardens and the houses, a perfect example of two completely different standards of living living living side by side.

Maastricht is reputed to be a very safe and trouble-free city, just like the rest of the country! So don’t worry about a thing when you visit Maastricht.

ou-dormir-proche-maastricht

We particularly recommend Margraten. This Limburg village offers a blend of peace and harmony that will make your stay a memorable experience.

What’s more, there’s plenty to do here with your family, friends or partner, as well as sites not to be missed!

  • We invite you to visit the American cemetery, home to some 8301 victims of the Second World War, whose names are inscribed on the 30-metre-high tower in the middle of the main courtyard.
  • Don’t forget to visit the surrounding castles, with their impressive and inimitable architectural styles.
  • Try the restaurants of Margraten and let yourself be carried away by the original and subtle flavours of typical Dutch dishes.
  • Visit the famous Sint Margaritakerk church to learn more about the renovations it underwent between 1922 and 1928 by Alphons Boosten.
  • Take a trip underground to the “MergelRijk” caves in Valkenburg and explore the hidden treasures of these fabulous caves. This educational tour will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about marl.
