Maastricht

Maastricht is a city in the province Limburg in the southern part of the Netherlands and is located along the Meuse river. Maastricht started as a Roman settlement near a bridge over the Meuse river in the first century. Later Maastricht developed to a religious centre until it lost his position to Liège in the eight century. Maastricht became important again in the Middle Ages as centre for trade and manufacturing. Integration of Maastricht into the Netherlands did not come easily, because of the eccentric location in the far south of the Netherlands. This is why the city still has a non-Dutch appearance. Nowadays Maastricht is a city of history and culture and a very popular destination for tourists, also for the Dutch.
