We heard about Roman ruins in Maastricht and began researching the history of the city. It's recommended you do the same before visiting. The Romans chose to build a road through Maastricht to Cologne and a fortress and temple along the West side of the...More

My boyfriend loved this because he's a Roman history buff; I enjoyed it as well but definitely wasn't as excited about it as he was. Cool to take a look at, doesn't take long and is interesting. Free entrance so if you have the time...More

It looks just like any other hotel and bar but inside there are Roman ruins well worth seeing. You don't have to buy anything but its worth just having a quick drink or snack while you so I am up the ruins

Stopped into the Derlon Hotel for a cocktail and was amazed to see the hotel sits on Roman ruins. It is really cool to check out and the bar was lovely.

These Roman ruins are to be found in the basement of the Derlon hotel. We called in to the hotel bar for a drink on a rainy day to let the shower pass. It was a very stylish bar and as an added bonus, when...More

Although we didn't have breakfast in the cellar nor stayed in the hotel, the friendly staff allowed us a quick peek in their cellar. Which is absolutely worth a visit!
