    some Maastricht churches

    I love strolling through Maastricht. Thanks to Roy (Imaniac) who was our first-class guide, we made a lovely walk through and around the old city centre. As I'm not able to give you the whole itinerary, I've found a description of a perfect sightseeing walk on this page (only in dutch, but maybe you could follow by the street names). Maybe some day, if I have time left, I'll translate it for you :))

    walk through the old city

    The picture shows some of the different church towers in the old city. It has been taken from the bridge for pedestrians, which crosses the Maas river and connects the new part of Maastricht with the old one,

  • Kayaking on the river Maas

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kayaking on the river Maas, on the borderline between Holland and Belgium, means relaxing in free nature, between meadows, fields and small villages. The route is quite ok, relaxing moments and speeding up. There's no ship-traffic on the route and there are no locks on the section. If you want to rest you simply get ashore, there are many pubs along the route. (you wear a life-jacket so you can have those beers). There are 2 routes one is 21 km the other is 11 km. Costs: 12,50 euro for a single, 20 euro for a double.
    A reservation is recomanded, the excact location from which the route starts depends on whether you choose the long or shorter one. You will have to contact the number below to get the details

    Equipment: wearing a tuxedo will actually be necesarry. But if you prefer water-proofed clothes that is ok. there are changing rooms. Life jacket and all the other equipement (like, f.e. a boat,) is of course included.

  • Autopedtocht

    by ger4444 Written Dec 6, 2002

    Of course there are a lot of sportfacilities in Maastricht, but its more fun to do some weird typicilally Maastricht things! Autopetten is quite funny to do. You can explore the city on this scooter, and you receive a map with a route discription. This route shows you the way through the old center but also takes you into the beautyfull Jekerdal, into nature.

    Equipment: you get your equipment when you buy your ticket.

    Of course you want to do some sport that u wont be able to do elsewere: so that is mountainbikking in the old caves. You will get all your equipment when you buy a ticket. Then you go into the deep dark caves on your bike and explore them by crossing the tunnels up and down. Of course there will be a guide to look that you wont get lost!
