People walking the historic streets of Maastricht, Netherlands.

Maastricht is one of the oldest cities in The Netherlands, boasting picturesque architecture, medieval town ramparts, cobblestone alleys and streets, seventeenth-century facades, and a Roman bridge. Maastricht has everything a student could wish for: a historic city center; countless numbers of inviting sidewalk cafés, pubs, and restaurants; sports facilities; shops; and countless film, music, and theatre venues. Or get outside the city and experience the countryside by taking long, leisurely walks or mountain biking in the low green hills surrounding Maastricht.
