Push boundaries in
The oldest city in the Netherlands is today one of the country's preferred student cities. More than 10 percent of the inhabitants are students, and almost half of those are international. In total almost 20 percent of the Maastricht population (more than 122,000 inhabitants) are involved with higher education in the city – Zuyd Hogeschool and Maastricht University - as students or employees.
A city to love
Maastricht was founded by the Romans as Mosae Trajectum on a strategic crossroads of traffic routes and the Meuse River. The oldest city in the Netherlands is today one of the country's preferred student cities. Its lifestyle and the concentration of bars and restaurants in the historic centre give this city an atmosphere which is atypical for the northern half of Europe. Maastricht has continued to be both a crossroad for travellers and a city worth staying in. Belgium and Germany are literally a bike ride away from the city center. The city is also an ideal starting place for excursions to major European cities such as Amsterdam, Cologne, Brussels or even Paris!
