Life in Maastricht
If you enjoy the good life, you’ve come to the right city.
Maastricht’s old historic centre has shops, bars and excellent food.
Check out the new urban areas, which include a cultural hotbed in the old industrial site, with the Muziekgieterij pop venue and Lumière, a restaurant and café in the old power station of the Sphinx factories.
And everything is within cycling distance.
The atmosphere is relaxed. The people are friendly and hospitable. And there are many (international) students.
In fact, students make up more than 10 percent of the city’s population, and half of them come from outside the Netherlands. Meet Brian and watch the video to see how he spends his life as a student.
