The station building of Maastricht.
At the end of 2021, following more than two and a half years of restoration works, Maastricht’s train station was restored to its former glory, including the return of historic elements from the monumental building. The station first opened in 1916 and was designed by George van Heukelom. The platform roof made from reinforced concrete is characteristic of major technical – and, therefore, innovative – developments in that era.
The station’s historical elements have been restored and exposed once again, such as the large mural in the AH to go, the original fountain in the station hall, and an old station clock. The building’s façades have also been cleaned, and the authentic Mosa floor and wall tiles have been restored.
