Food & drink

Maastricht is a city of gastronomy with many local culinary traditions. Dishes like zuurvlees, a delicious meat stew, served with chips and apple sauce, while lavish sharing platters, local craft beers, and wines combine effortlessly with regional merriment. The dialect lures you to the table, and ‘going for a few drinks’ seamlessly turn into an evening meal. Maastricht entrepreneurs are known for their welcoming spirit. Enjoy the food. Meet the locals. Welcome to Maastricht!

Enjoyment in true southern tradition

We’ll let you in on a little secret... Visiting Maastricht during the week is so much better than at the weekend! Just imagine... Having the city to yourself. No endless queues or fully booked restaurants, but a city with plenty of peace and quiet. Stroll through the city, lose your way in the charming streets until you arrive at a beautiful basilica. Light a candle, like the locals do every day, and take a moment to appreciate all the beauty. If you visit Maastricht between Thursday and Sunday you’ll experience the city like a local.

Our city just got even tastier
