TRIED & TESTED

Maastricht is the most Southern city in The Netherlands. If you are an avid follower of Petite Passport, you saw that I was there in January already, but because of a recent hotel opening, I drove there again with my sister. I’m going to tell you all about The Dutch (a super nice hotel in Miami Vice 80s style) soon, but first a little bit more about Maastricht. A small, cozy and elegant city in the south of the country. The river Maas separates the center of the Wyck district, both worth visiting. Always on my list is a visit to Book Store Dominicanen in an old church. Gorgeous! Even if you do not like reading, you will love it. And if you do love magazines and books you can easily spend hours here. We had lunch at Cafe Zondag of the same owner as The Brandweerkantine, also a recommendation. Shopping at Festen is a must – especially the new store across the street is a beauty. Cinema and restaurant Lumiere is only a few weeks old and furnished by Dorine Vos, also responsible for Hotel New York and Villa Augustus (and apparently attracted to properties that are close to the Maas ;)). Lumiere is located in the sphinx quarter, the well-known pottery factory and is familiar with areas such as Strijp-S in Eindhoven and the Honig factory in Nijmegen, but smaller. A place to keep an eye on.
For now, Maastricht through the lens of my iPhone:
