Maastricht cruise

How’s this for the perfect vacation experience? A European river cruise that only takes an hour, yet offers all you ever wanted to see from up close. From medieval buildings, castles and battlements, to remnants of Roman settlements. But also rolling hills, cozy shopping streets and romantic lights. Along the way you get to taste the local delicacies. Book this Maastricht cruise and you get it all!

Maastricht cruise

Your Maastricht cruise goes down the river Meuse and passes under beautiful stone bridges. Remnants from the time Maastricht was a Roman settlement, they’ve been carefully restored and maintained. Within an hour, you take in the city sights and go past the Bonnefanten Museum. Its collection ranges from medieval sculpture to mindblowing Sol Lewitt installations. From the water you’ll even see the ancient fortress on Mount St. Peter. This is the only elevation that almost qualifies as a mountain in the Netherlands.

Culinary delights

Choose from a broad selection of packages on offer for your Maastricht cruise. Enjoy a brunch cruise, or pancake cruise. Do come prepared - Dutch pancakes are thin like crepes, but also the size of wagon wheels. Or combine a Maastricht cruise with a visit to a brewery, winery or bakery. A delightful local treat is ‘vlaai’, a pie with a bottom of leavened sweet dough and a variety of fillings. Everything from apricots to rice pudding– the secret favorite among aficionados.

Debark at your leisure

The hour-long cruise turns around where the boat almost reaches the border with Belgium. A Maastricht cruise will make you want to see the sights you pass. Visit the caves in Mount St. Peter and return on a later boat, or go on a city walking tour. Not unlike Paris, Maastricht is known for its tastefully dressed citizens and convivial gourmet food culture. There are shopping opportunities galore, and restaurants and bars on every street corner serve fresh local fare. A Maastricht cruise is an expedition to cherish long after you return home.
