There is a lot to see and experience in Maastricht. So come to the festival with your partner or relative and make it a beautiful day or weekend. Does your company not drink alcohol, but do you want to go to “The Spirit of Maastricht” together? Then take a look at our special BOB ticket.
Guided tour Fort St. Pieter & Grotten Noord
Step back in time and relive history on a guided tour of Fort Sint Pieter and Caves North. The enthusiastic guides will first take you along the well, the shooting holes and the cannon gallery of Fort Sint Pieter and meanwhile you can enjoy beautiful stories full of anecdotes and facts.
Then you go on an adventure in the caves of the Sint Pietersberg! No light, no sound, no smell, no radiation, no pollution, no reach with your phone, no awareness of time… In a labyrinth of once more than 20,000 courses, a professional guide takes you underground where in the corridors names and drawings appear of people who worked here several hundred years ago day in and day out. An experience you don’t want to miss, but daring and imagination are required!
Guided city walk
A guided city walk is highly recommended. Stories, anecdotes and facts bring the history of the city to life. The guide will take you past beautiful places in the city centre, such as the Stokstraat Quarter, the Onze Lieve Vrouweplein with the basilica, the ramparts, the park, the Jeker Quarter and the Vrijthof with the monumental church St. Jan and the basilica of St. Servaas.
Arts and Heritage Tour
Take a look behind the facades of the University Buildings and discover these monumental buildings with exceptional works of art. Maastricht University is located in a number of special buildings in the city, each with its own character and atmosphere. Behind the facades of these buildings there are also unique works of art on display. Under the guidance of enthusiastic students of Maastricht University or VVV guides, beautiful murals, statues, paintings, reliefs, memorials and sculptures will be reviewed!
Cruising the the Meuse
The five passenger ships of the Stiphout Shipping Company provide a large number of scheduled boat trips. These vary from a short cruise on the Meuse to a full day trip to Liège. Or from a brunch boat trip on Sunday morning to an atmospheric Saturday Night Dinner Cruise. The possibilities are endless, but for all of them: with a trip on the water you’re really out of the woods for a while.
City Code Maastricht
Continue where Dr. Livingstone’s search ended. Imagine your way through Maastricht using cryptic clues. Walk as a ‘holy traveller’ via Maastricht to Jerusalem in the Servaas Basilica, find important clues at a tomb in the St.Jan and even a model from the Museum of Natural History contains an important clue! The search for truth leads you to the special hall of Maastricht station, the ‘Vief Köp’, and even forces you to delve into the French siege of Maastricht in 1673. It’s all worth it, if you finally know how to unravel the secret of Julius Caesar. Maastricht will never be the same again, if you have been able to discover the secret.
