Helping you find some peace and quiet

It’s that time again – time for holidays! But where’s the best place to go if you’re looking for some peace and quiet? Visit Maastricht! We’ve got everything you need within our city limits... and sometimes just across the border. Our blog has 5 tips to help you find some peace and quiet in Maastricht. Say hello to that holiday feeling!

TIP 1: MONDAY FUNDAY!

You won’t be surprised to hear that weekends are the busiest time in Maastricht. So, we want to inspire you to forget the weekends and come and explore Maastricht during the week – especially if you want to visit the city centre. The city really is much more pleasant between Monday and Friday. Shop owners have more time for you, and you don’t have to queue to visit your favourite store!

TIP 2: EARLY BIRD

Several studies have shown that getting up early is good for you! And given that many people have a lie-in during their holidays, the early birds really do have the city to themselves. Check out the city’s opening hours on this page and be the first to explore!

TIP 3: DISCOVER NATURE

The benefit of Maastricht is its unique, leafy location between Belgium and Germany. Alongside being perfect for practising your languages, it’s the ideal place to explore some breathtaking hilly landscapes. Whether a refreshing bicycle ride to Vaals or a pleasant walk to Kanne, you can do it all in Maastricht without having to worry about social distancing. Have you discovered Limburg’s beauty spots?

TIP 4: BOOK A SPA DAY

Although businesses need to adapt to a whole new situation, guests looking for some peace and quiet are in for a treat. A day at the spa is much less crowded than it usually is. So if you’re after some peace and quiet and don’t want to worry about crowded places, book a spa day. Book a relaxing massage and switch your phone off all day. Enjoy some quality relaxation time at Thermae 2000.

TIP 5: SKIP SUMMER

You may have been looking forward to a holiday for a long time, but have to plan around the construction industry holidays or school holidays. If you’re a little bit flexible, you should try to come after the busy summer period. Maastricht will be a bit quieter in September, so you can come and enjoy our city at a more relaxing pace. Wait that little bit longer and reap the rewards!
