There is no shortage of things to see and do in Maastricht. The city is a lover of the arts and over the years an extremely varied programme of high-quality festivals has evolved appealing to young and old alike -from classical, pop, dance and jazz festivals to theatre, dance and poetry. One of the world’s biggest art fairs, TEFAF, is held at the Maastricht Exhibition and Congress Centre, displaying work by some of the world’s best known artists and is definitely worth a visit.
For those wanting more, Maastricht’s Latin Quarter, boasts lovely galleries, design shops and interior design stores. Take a stroll to Galerie Bell'Arte, specialising in sculpture and Galerie Stevens where the emphasis is on contemporary art – whether you’re just viewing or purchasing, it will be worth the visit.
