Maastricht is an especially popular tourist destination in the Netherlands because of its historical old center and broad shopping possibilities. The University of Maastricht attracts many national and foreign students to the city.
Geographically, the city is split in half by a major river (the Maas), with the majority of commercial activity being concentrated on the Western bank of the river, and the train station and the Bonnefanten Museum on the Eastern side.
A great place to spend some time, it contains some magnificent buildings and culture, taking the form of plenty of old houses and buildings, lovely cathedrals and a spectacularly cobblestoned town centre.
The city is also well known for its fine cuisine, excellent shops and multicultural atmosphere.
The VVV  is a branch office of the Dutch national tourist agency.
The office offers maps, souvenirs, and local, regional, and national travel suggestions.
Maastricht is well served by train, with train stations (Maastricht, near the centre of the city, and Maastricht Randwyck, in the south).
There are two trains departing from Maastricht Station to the northern destinations every hour.
They can be located in Maastricht at Kleine Staat 1, in the city center.
