River Maas Maastricht : Enjoy the sights along this famous river

The river Maas is the main river of Holland that passes many states and provinces. Yes, it passes through Maastricht as well!

As we walked along river Maas (aka Meuse), we enjoyed all the sights that the walk along the river has to offer. Here are some of the more notable sights along the river…

Sint Servaasbrug

Sint Servaasbrug is one of the bridges that connects from the train station side of the city to the old city/city centre itself (i.e. east to west side of the city). The bridge is characterised by the limestones used in its construction as well as the arches of channels that it has under it.

Hoge Brug

Medieval Remnants

There is no actual name for this remnant along the river (or is there? can the locals tell us?) but as with the other medieval fortifications in Maastricht, it is a great area to have a picturesque photo along the river.
