Maastricht invites you!
Maastricht is the most southern city of The Netherlands with a vibrant history. Maastricht is a crossroad of European cultures, languages and trade routes, that lend it a unique charm and international flavour. Dutch visitors find Maastricht so ‘un-Dutch’ that they feel as if they are abroad, while foreign visitors tend to feel perfectly at home in its international atmosphere.
Year after year Maastricht is one of the top three conference cities in the country. The Euregion surrounding Maastricht lies in the centre of north-western Europe and is an area of great scientific, technological and industrial potential, with a modern infrastructure, an internationally oriented multilingual population, a high standard of living and great conference facilities.
