Experience Maastricht from the water with the canal cruise Maastricht!

This Attraction is closed until further notice.

From now on you can discover Maastricht by boat! The canal cruise in Maastricht sails over the famous river The Maas, where the city also owes its name to, a unique part of history. The boat tour is about 60 minutes and shows you all the highlights of the city. In your tour you can listen to an audio guide that tells you interesting facts about the city. It is also possible to combine this boat trip with a visit to Sint Pietersberg for a walk of a tour through the caves, because the boat makes a short stop there. You can then return one opinion of the night to Maastricht. After this short stop, the boat sails along the slopes of St. Pietersberg.

After a full day of shopping, the boat-tour was the best way to rest. We enjoyed the view so much, I made a lot of pictures. The boat was very cute!
