Full description
Enjoy a full-day (11-hour) excursion from Amsterdam to Maastricht in the south of the Netherlands. The capital city of Limburg province may actually be the oldest city in the country. It has been inhabited continuously since Roman times, evolving from a Roman settlement to a religious center and an early industrial city.

Take a guided walk through the historic area of Maastricht and see the oldest bridge in the Netherlands, Saint Servatius, and 2 of the oldest churches – Saint Servatius Basilica and the Church of Our Lady.

Because of its strategic position on the Meuse River, Maastricht has been attacked by foreign powers on countless occasions over the centuries. You’ll see elaborate city walls, moats, forts and other defensive works around the city as a result. In addition, there is a network of underground passageways built between 1575 and 1825. The tunnels were used to surprise enemies during times of siege, and are now partially open to the public.

Maastricht is also known as a city of indulgences and fine cuisine. The city's celebration of Carnival is among the biggest and most festive in all of the Netherlands.

Admire the city’s squares, such as Vrijthof, home to Sint-Servaas Church, Sint-Jan’s Cathedral and many bars, café, restaurants and markets.

Visit the Tripoint (Drielandenpunt), where the borders of the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany meet. Head to the highest point in the country on Vaalserberg, at 322.7 meters.
