In the Céramique district, you still feel the industrial past, even though you're standing in the newest and most modern part of the city. It's the kind of place where you look up and keep looking, to take in the impressive architecture, even as the ground around you buzzes with culture and activity.
Leave the narrow, cobblestone streets and their historic old buildings behind for a bit and discover an entirely different, exciting, and dynamic side of Maastricht. Nowhere in Maastricht is there a place where past and present come together so powerfully as in Céramique.
Céramique is the place to be if you're a culture vulture. The iconic Bonnefantenmuseum located along the Meuse, Centre Céramique, and the Bordenhal, repertory theatre of Toneelgroep Maastricht theatre ensemble, are all within walking distance. You'll never be bored in Céramique!
