Train ticket for bike transport Maastricht-Liege

by groover101

What does it cost to purchase a train ticket that allows me to load my bike at the station in Maastricht and transport to Liege Belgium? In the past transporting a bike across the Holland Belgium border via the train has been about 30euro (Never understood the reason for the expensive price)and in turn I would simply cycle to Vise,the first stop inside the Belgium border and load the bike in Vise. This cost only 5-6 euro....this was a couple years past and I was just wondering if the Maastricht-Liege bike ticket had changed in price.


Also,is the train station construction in Liege near completion?

According to the Belgium NMBS website is bicycle transport € 9,00 per bicycle on Benelux trains. Next to a ticket for your bicycle you need a ticket for yourself; the price depends on how you travel, 1st or 2nd class; one way or return. Lowest price I saw was € 4,80 for 2nd class one way.

I don't know how construction of the Liege train station is doing.

BTW With Liege station do you mean: Liege-Guillemins or Liege-Palais?

Thanks for the reply. I never understood the reason for the very expensive bike ticket from Maastricht but someone at the station a few years back explained that it was because of the border crossing,which never made any sense. I never asked about it last year and I had noticed that there seemed to be some changes in the regions transportation. I do rather enjoy the short bike ride from Maastricht to Vise but this time it will I need to catch the 0630 train so it will be a very early morning bike commute.

The construction I was speaking of was indeed at Liege-Guillimens. I changed trains there last year and was suprised the old station is completely gone. Still a good place for a beer or two while you wait to connect though.

Maastricht - Liège is now no longer an international train, but solely the responsability of the Belgian Railways, so for your bike you now only have to pay 5 euro.
However, the ticket sales at the Maastricht station cannot sell domestic Belgian tickets, so when leaving Maastricht you need to buy your bicycle ticket on the train from the conductor. (The ticket for yourself you still must get from the vending machine, or the ticket office)

Travel Tips for Maastricht

Citycentre

by sachara

It's easy to see the citycentre by feet, because the most of the must sees are within walking distance. For me the river Maas and the St Servaasbridge are the landmarks with Wijck and the railwaystation at the eastbank and the historical citycentre at the westbank.

At a small shop opposite the railwaystation I bought a small citycentre map (8x5cm). This small map makes it easy to find your way wandering in the narrow and cosy streets in the old centre between the Onze Lieve Vrouwen Plein, the Vrijthof and Market square.

Maastricht Tip

by PSK808

I visited Maastricht during Carnival. For a small city, this was the biggest, happiest, loudest, most colorful party that I had ever seen! Some of costumes that people had on were quite intricate and elaborate. A great place/time to meet people and have a good time!

Vrythof - inner city

by Luchonda

Vrythof - near the marketplace in Maastricht
Another highlight to be visited - a lot of pubs and restaurants. Monuments like the Theater and of course the Church St-Jan and Basilic St Servatius. Those historical churches are called by the locals, place of Hell and Heaven and separated by a small road, called "Het Vagevuur" (dutch for purgatory) A nice daytrip to the Netherlands - a lot of historical buildings, a visit to the caves, the walls and the Bisschopsmolen

Entering the old city

by Luchonda

Entering the old city of Maastricht - looking for a quick bite in a unique atmosphere.
"La bonne femme" seems to be a good pub/restaurant, located next to the famous "Stokstraat" and the Church of our Lady
But i never entered this restaurant - my sense said - go to "De Spiegel" located nearby (look at my restaurant tips)

No monument shall be McDonnaldisized

by ger4444

Im quite happy that Maatricht gouvernment has a tough policy on monument maintenance. Commercial forces might be frustrated by the fact that it is not easy to over-billboard the old town and its historic buildings, one has to learn the lesson: Maastricht people dont seem to want the old town to be turned into a Times square or a Piccadilly Circus. i think that it is a good thing that Maastricht is not a victum of the McDonnaldization of the world! F.e - of course the maastricht people couldnt resist the capitalistic forces that were opposed on this innocent town, by the large corporations such as McDonnalds - but they forced them to adapt their standard design to the mere historic features of Maastricht architecture, in between which these corporations wanted to place their settlement. Very post modern!
