Amsterdam to Maastricht by train

Travel from the Dutch capital to the charm of Maastricht in no time at all! NS trains will speed you along from Amsterdam to Maastricht in just over 2 hours, and you can even go First Class if you fancy. Leave behind the hustle and bustle of the capital and head to one of the country’s oldest cities. Give your journey a subterranean twist and start your adventure from the bottom up, or should that be top? St. Peter’s Caves are set in a mountain, so while you may be walking beneath its peak, you’re still high up. It’s a pretty amazing experience and one that makes the trip well worth it!

When you’ve resurfaced, head to for a beer in Het Vrijthof, the town square. St. Servatius Basilica will be right in front of you, for a view that’s hard to beat. If you like hunting for rare treasures then you won’t have to travel far, as the city flea market sets up just outside the station, the perfect place to find unique souvenirs. The Wyck District offers plenty more retail therapy if you fancy it, with local and international brands. When it’s time to dine, Zuurvlees is a dish unique to South Holland and is made with horsemeat (or sometimes rabbit) and teamed with crunchy fries is a warming meal on colder days but plain delicious on sunny ones too!
