Maastricht Underground | Pop-up Museum Casemates Waldeck


Between 1575 and 1825, a network of underground passageways or mine galleries was created on the western side of Maastricht.

Between 1575 and 1825, a network of underground passageways or mine galleries was created on the western side of Maastricht. During times of siege, these tunnels were used to approach and surprise the enemy from under the ground. Like moles underground, people who dug this 14-kilometre long system of defensive tunnels under the western side of the city in the 18th century. During the Second World War, the people of Maastricht spent many fearful hours crowded together here, sheltering from bombardments. 

New: Now opened as a pop-up museum. Because of COVID-19 regulations, it is not possible to visit the casemattes with large groups in guided tours. So we open the Casemattes Waldeck as a pop-up museum. After a short introduction by one of our official guides, you and your household (people who live at one adress and share facilities) walk through the tunnels by yourself with a text. You book a timeslot for 1 to maximum 6 persons, who are all part of the same household.
