Good parking right beneath square. Beautiful but not too too touristed and precious. Right beside two attractions at St Servaas and St Janskerk. Near good bars and restaurants.

This square is a must if you want to see Andre Rieu at his best. Large City Centre square surrounded by ancient buildings. Not to be missed

The centre is enclosed by trees and around the edge are many restaurants. We attended an Andre Rieu concert but you couldn't see much of the stage only the large screens but you could hear perfectly. Well worth a visit. Maastricht centre is small enough...More

I don’t believe so? Alcohol is only served around the cafe’s and restaurants surrounding the Vrijhof. Thats why we got tickets at a cafe. Sit, eat and drink with Bathroom access! Enjoy.. see ya on the 22nd.
