|Claudia's visit February 2008|
There are cafes, bars and restaurants scattered throughout Maastricht, you're guaranteed to find something to cater for all budgets and preferences. If the sun is shining you won't be stuck trying to find a terrace to relax on as the Dutch are big fans of outdoor cafe life. One of our favourites is Brasserie Bonhomme on the Maaspromenade. Alternatively there is a great selection in front of the Onze-Lieve Vrouwbasiliek or on the Vrijthof.
|Sculpture of Pieke|
You will find the sculpture of Pieke and his dog in Stokstraat, he was a character in a book written by the author Ber Hollewijn. The Generaalshuis on the Vrijthof was built in 1809 by General Dibbets, who succeeded in keeping Maastricht part of the Netherlands. The Cemetery, is now one of the city's main squares and was located outside the town walls when the construction of St Servaas began.
Below some more photos taken in Maastricht when Carlos and Jose visited us in June 2008. Next time guys, try parking the easy way :-) (private joke).
