Maastricht lies on both sides of the river Maas, and its name has burnt into people’s mind connected to the Establishing Act of the European Union, which was signed here, and was named after the city.
Inside the city one can find a few piece of architecture, such as churches since Maastricht used to be a religious centre of the region. Also there are two famous bridges in the city, one is the Queen Velma where you can have a marvelous look at the historic seven-hole bridge the St. Servac bridge.
Maastricht is bordered on Belgium from the west, and Germany from the east. So if one decides to rent a car it is possible to visit these countries and experience their cultures as well. The German strictness regarding vehicles and transport affects the country’s surroundings which applies to the Netherlands and as follows Maastricht. This makes these car trips really smooth and relaxing, while watching the scenery from the motorways. Moreover Maastricht is not far from Eindhoven and other cozy Dutch towns, so closer car travels can be enjoyable too.
