Winter fun on the Vrijthof Square

There's so much to experience again this year on Vrijthof. The square is full of winter-themed chalets, selling delicious treats and gorgeous Christmas decorations. But the winter fun doesn’t stop there. Dust off your skates because, this year, you can show off your skating talents on the covered ice rink. New for this year is a small replica of the St. Servatius bridge, which you can skate under and walk over. Fancy a go at curling? No problem! Challenge your friends on the new street curling rink and make fantastic memories together. Vrijthof is the place to be!

Enchanting experience

This year, the Vrijthof square is more enchanting than ever. Walk through the sparkling tunnel of lights, which leads to the Basilica of St. Servatius. Have a ride on the traditional carousel or big wheel, which is even bigger this year! From 45 metres up in the air, you can enjoy fantastic views while snuggled up in a sealed gondola. Got someone in mind to take with you?

As well as a romantic ride on the big wheel, for an adrenaline hit give tube-gliding a go. Winter fun for everyone.

Tantalizing winter treats

There’s nothing cosier than drinking a delicious hot chocolate or mulled wine by a fire, whether you’re with friends or family, or visiting as a couple. Magical Maastricht Vrijthof is once again full of the tastiest food stands. Fresh ‘oliebollen’ (deep-fried dough balls), traditional waffles, and typical Austrian dishes in the Almhütte chalet: you’ll find it all here!
