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 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 is the bridge between the Sint Servaasbrug and JFK bridge. It is characterised by its modern single arch stretching from one side of the river to the other.
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.
Beluga Restaurant Maastricht
Beluga is one of the most famous Michelin restaurants in Maastricht. Given its location as well as the excellent choice of foods that it serves, Beluga draws visitors and locals alike to its premise.
Charles Eyck Park
As you continue to walk along the river (southwards), you will come across the Charles Eyck Park. It is a nice little area to chill, enjoy the views of the river as well as the bridges that spans the river Maas.
Strange as it looks, Bonnefanten Museum is one of the most famous museums in Maastricht. Today, it houses one of the most interesting collections of old art as well as contemporary art.
