Café Charlemagne (Onze Lieve Vrouweplein 24):

Welcoming ‘brown’ (old-fashioned) pub on what may well be the most bustling square in Maastricht. Don’t forget to ask for one of their delicious 'beer plates'.

De Dikke Dragonder (Platielstraat 21):

Old-fashioned ‘brown’ pub of which only a few are left. Sherry casks serve as tables and the pub has live music on a regular basis.

De Feesfebrik (Markt 25):

Want to have a party? At the Feesfebrik, there is something going on every week, especially from Thursday night through to the weekend. Lots of students, lots of beer, lots of DJs – and opening hours until 6 in the morning.

Café de twee Heeren (Platiel 17-19):

What would a night on the town in Maastricht be without it? A great place to have a beer or a glass of wine, and also known for its excellent lunch and dinner menus.

Café Sjiek (St Pieterstraat 13):

With its excellent wine car and great food, Sjiek is almost a restaurant but it is mainly a living room. One where people meet over a glass of good beer or wine.


In de Moriaan (Stokstraat 12):

In de Moriaan is the smallest café in Holland, but its open-air and glassed-in terraces open out onto a monumental little square, Op de Thermen. This is a lovely place for a glass of wine, a cheese platter and mouth-watering ‘escargots’ (cooked snails).

Servaas' café (Coversplein 10): 

With its lovely terrace and beautiful views of the Meuse and Sint-Servaas bridge, Servaas serves excellent lunches. Order a ‘bruschetta’ or a ‘Servaas burger’, for instance.

De Mangerie (Ruiterij 1):

Hotel Crowne Plaza serves lunch and dinner on one of the most beautiful terraces in town, with refined side dishes and sophisticated wines.

Grand Café d'n Ingel (Vrijthof 13):

Situated on one of the most beautiful squares in Maastricht, the Vrijthof, the terrace of this café invites you to sit down and relax.

Aan de Linde (Jan Deckerstraat 1B):

Just outside the city centre, at the start of the Lindenlaan, you’ll find this lovely terrace on the side of the Geul. The Limburg 'savoir vivre' comes to life here with an excellent menu and thirst-quenching drinks.

Harbour Club (Bassinkade 4):

An eye-catching design restaurant in a vaulted cellar by the water. Relax near the open fire or have a drink and a bite to eat on their lovely terrace.
