Why not a houseboat holiday in Maastricht?
The River Maas runs like a vain through the city of Maastricht, just like the Seine runs through Paris. When you follow the Maas, it won't be long before you find a charming harbor with several tiny houseboats for rent. Located at only 10 - 15 minutes from the city centre, but with an abundance of green and water all around you. Yes, you are back to nature, and get in the holiday mood as soon as you set foot aboard one of the floating homes that are docked here.
Discover Limburg in style
From your houseboat you have a great view over the river, with the ever changing skies, and birds swimming by. A great place to start discovering the neighborhood. Hop on your rental bike and get out there. Of course you have to visit Maastricht, but did you know that both Belgium and Germany are within reach - even without a car? Discover the interesting hills for which Limburg is famous, and make sure to try one or more of the famous restaurants here. You are in the Burgundian country after all - so don't be ashamed to live the Burgundian life style that the people of Maastricht (and Limburg for that matter) are famous for!
Once you get on your bike again, continue your tour and enjoy the lovely villages that are dotted around. One important tip: make sure to rent or bring a bike with enough gears because although you won't find any real mountains here, the hills can be more of a challenge than you would think.
