Maastricht is back in bloom: businesses are opening up shop again, and visitors are coming back to enjoy the city. We’re bringing people together – but at a distance! That can-do Maastricht spirit is stronger than it ever has been.
Life in Maastricht has been quiet for a while, but it’s finally time to get things started again. We’d love to put on a huge event in celebration, but we’ve decided that low key is best. Terraces are looking as inviting as ever, and most shops are ready to welcome you with a smile. Follow the Maastricht ‘Ingel’ (angel) and give each other space in both shops and on terraces. On this page, we’ll show you what’s being done in our city, who the ‘Maastricht heroes’ are, what you can participate in, and what you can enjoy from home. Maastricht supports local! We’re calling on business owners, residents, young and old: let’s come together at a distance. In the Maastricht dialect, we say haw pin (keep courage): keep your chin up and stay strong! Because one thing is sure: the Spirit of Maastricht is stronger than ever!
We are incredibly happy to announce that the Maastricht Visitor Center has reopened its doors. Visitors are once again welcome to stop by the ultimate place for information and inspiration about Maastricht, located in the Dinghuis building on Kleine Staat 1! Due to measures implemented by the central government, we have remained closed these past few months to prevent the spread of coronavirus. This has given us the time to ensure that we can welcome you while adhering to the applicable measures.

We hope to see you soon at the Maastricht Visitor Center. HAW PIN (stay strong)!
Maastricht city centre has recently been equipped with pedestrian routes. The routes, signs and hospitality guides in some shopping areas will show you the best way to navigate the city safely. It might take some getting used to, but this is the best way for us to enjoy Maastricht again. Read on and get ready for your visit to the city.Read all about it here
On the ‘Thuis in Maastricht’ (home in Maastricht) platform you can learn about the districts, people, and stories of Maastricht. Because we will mainly be staying at home for the next few weeks, ‘Thuis in Maastricht’ provides entertainment from the comfort of your own sofa. Instead of offering suggestions for what to do in Maastricht, it helps you to find things to do at home, like listening to the Mayor reading a story, live concerts, special stories, and the online show ‘Wawwelbox’ where locals get to have their say. This is exactly what we need to keep up our spirits during these uncertain times!Go to the Home agenda
In the Maastricht dialect, we say haw pin (‘keep calm and carry on’) when we need to keep our chins up, a sentiment that is incredibly important in the current situation. We designed this window poster and postcards inspired by the Angel-Side supporters club of Maastricht football club MVV who had hung a fantastic banner on the MUMC+ in praise and support of the healthcare staff. Your purchase will help to support the ‘Stichting Met je Hart’ foundation.Order the A2 poster
