Maastricht is the perfect city for shopping. The shops are open seven days a week with extended opening hours on Thursdays and have regular sales where you can benefit from massive discounts.
Sales in Maastricht are not planned for any particular period. In contrast with Belgium and Germany, sales in the Netherlands don't have a fixed start and end date. If you want to be sure when your favourite shop is holding its next sale, the best thing to do is call the shop and speak to an employee there.
We can start enjoying our city again, little by little. Due to the new set of measures to contain the spread of coronavirus, some measures will be in place in Maastricht in the coming months. Due to the stricter measures to control coronavirus, several events have been cancelled. Cultural institutions are open with appropriate measures. The current opening hours and the latest information about the measures and what they mean for you are available on our website. If you’re visiting Maastricht and want to make sure the place you want to visit isn’t closed or that you can go inside without having to wait, make sure to call in advance.
