Boat trips on the Meuse River
Discover Maastricht from the water: floating along the Meuse, with the contours of the city as your backdrop, on board with a cup of coffee and a delicious piece of Limburg vlaai... Simply delightful. A variety of boat trips, each with their own theme or destination, all depart from a very central spot on the Meuse in the city centre. As soon as you board one of the tour boats, you will feel that holiday feeling taking hold, and you can relax and enjoy learning even more about this beautiful city.
Below are just some of the trips on offer:
On a Meuse cruise, you'll discover some of Maastricht's unique highlights on a single boat trip. The trip takes you past the historic St. Servatius bridge, part of the first city wall of Maastricht (dating back to 1229), the new Céramique city district, the Gouvernement (provincial government) building, and St. Pietersberg hill. Just before reaching the Belgian border, the boat turns around and returns to the centre of Maastricht.
