Are you new to Maastricht? Or just curious about the town and its history?
Meet Maastricht will take you on a beautiful journey through time, helping you discover the town’s secrets! We organize tailor-made activities for students, expats, and locals alike, in collaboration with experts from cultural institutions of Maastricht. We also guide you through the most interesting cultural events happening in Maastricht.
We launched this project in September 2016, because we felt that there was a gap in the cultural offers in the city.
There are around 120 000 residents in Maastricht including many who do not speak Dutch and often look at Maastricht through the eyes of a tourist! Before the launch of Meet Maastricht, there were hardly any ways for them to really get to know the city, with its beautiful monuments, stories, traditions and hidden treasures. So we started a collaboration with local experts in heritage and tourism and now we are really amazed about how quickly the Meet Maastricht community is growing!
“Meet Maastricht is the latest chapter in my lifelong habit of welcoming people to ‘my town’ – I am a native, have lived here most of my life, know the city like the back of my hand and keep making new discoveries. So join me in exploring the old and new, the familiar and surprising and everything Maastricht has to offer.”
“Hello and welcome to Meet Maastricht! I am Flora, a French expat settled in Maastricht since March 2019. How happy I am to be a member of Meet Maastricht! I am passionate about heritage and history and after 3 years as a professional guide in France, I followed a second Master degree about heritage, culture, marketing and communication. After being a guide in the Sphinx for the Inside Out Project, I joined Meet Maastricht. It is a perfect place for me: I can discover the city, meet other internationals and locals and also put my skills into use! I hope to see you soon at one of our events! ”
“Hello, I am Katrina and am excited to be a member of the Meet Maastricht team! After finishing my Masters of Museum and Heritage Studies in Canberra, Australia, I left my Aussie home behind and have been living in Maastricht since January 2019. As someone who loves oral history, popular culture and storytelling, Meet Maastricht has been the perfect way for me to learn about and get involved in my new home – I can’t wait to see you in the city! “
