No vehicle traffic makes this area and most of the city center a pleasant area to sit at an outdoor cafe in early evening! Nice to hear the chimes of the clock in the market square as tinme slowly ticks by!

The food in Market square is the finest food I’ve ever eaten. Food from all over Europe cooked to perfection. The atmosphere of Market square made a lasting impression on me. Maastricht is a beautiful place to visit.

I am glad I took a guided tour to this place because you appreciate everything around you a lot better. The history behind the architecture of the buildings is very hilarious and puts everything in the context of its time.
