Maastricht is an enchanting city during the winter months. This year, however, everything is different. Although things won’t be the same, Maastricht will still shine bright. Even during these difficult times, when the cold seems to conquer the warmth, Maastricht will be here for you. We will make sure that the light keeps shining.
This year’s Magical Light Routes will light up the sky as never before, museums will be providing comfort with special exhibitions, and shopkeepers will be displaying the most beautiful gifts in their vibrant shop windows. We look forward to welcoming you with a Maastricht smile as soon as we can. We hope to see you soon!
This year’s Magical Light Route is set to be extra special. Maastricht has created extra space for you, so you can take the time to discover the city at your own pace. From November onwards, three different light routes will take you to the most beautiful (and illuminated!) spots in the city. All you have to do is follow the light and enjoy every moment. Can you already feel the warm glow?View the routes here
Let’s get the city moving, together. With our combined efforts, we can bring the energy back into the city by creating space for each other while following current public health guidelines. Together, we can create magical moments and celebrate this winter like never before. Maastricht is ready to welcome you and give you all the space you need. Take the time to explore the city at your own pace and savour that Maastricht ambience even longer.
Combine your visit to Maastricht with an overnight stay. We recommend that you make the most of your visit, especially at this time of year. And that includes really making time for your stay. The best way to do that? Book a few nights at a hotel or a B&B. The city will be giving you all the space you need to discover the best attractions and events. All of our hotels, B&Bs, and resorts are making sure their guests can enjoy some extra sparkle this year. Be inspired by the wide range of accommodation. We hope to see you soon!Staying the night?
Unfortunately, Magical Maastricht on Vrijthof square won't be going ahead this year. We were all very disappointed to hear this news, because nothing is as vibrant and colourful as Vrijthof square during the winter months. The organization had a difficult choice to make and we fully support their decision. So how magical will Maastricht be this year? We are pulling out all the stops to illuminate the dark winter months.
