Fort Eben-Emael

Reviewed By _brigittemvdb - Knokke, Belgium

First be sure that the place is open. Check and re-check on their website but also by calling them.
We joined a group and had the perfect guide in Dutch.
The tour took more than 3 hours and was amazing.
Without a guide you could see a lot but won't understand the lay-out of tbe fort and the way it was build ( taking into account the mistakes that were made in Fort Loncin).
It is cool inside!

Castle Eijsden

Reviewed By FernandaCS72 - Eijsden, The Netherlands

If you are in the neighborhood, it's a good idea to go there. The best is to go by bike (park the bike outside - because it's not allowed to take it inside), visit the garden, enjoy the nature and then continue the bike ride in Eijsden and the villages around. The garden is open and it's free. Unfortunately, it's not possible to visit the castle, once it's private.

Maastricht Underground

Reviewed By SandieFossen - Den Bosch, The Netherlands

We bought the combination visit pass for the St Pieter Fort and the underground caves. The guide was very funny and knowledgeable. It was a different experience walking through the dark tunnels and learning about the history of Maastricht. Highly recommended for couples and family outings.

Netherlands American Cemetery and Memorial

Reviewed By Colin M - Perth, United Kingdom

Because this was an American cemetery and not a British one I was not sure what I would see in it, however, it turned out to be quite interesting, apart from all the graves, which you might expect, the tour guide told us about one or two of the soldiers who were of interest, I also found the chapel to be of interest, as was the wall which featured the battles over Europe from France up to Holland and beyond, although my special point of interest was the sculpture of the Mourning Lady and the Lily Pond.

Bien connu des autochtones, la montagne Saint Pierre ne vous laissera de glace. D'un parcours de 1 à 10 km, vous parcourez un parc naturel. Un allez retour de Kanne à Maastricht vous comblera. Les vues sur la Meuse, sur les vignes de Maastricht et sur le château de Kanne vous comblerons.

surprising walk into a system of hand-digged caves (mergelgrotten) showing the structure of the caving system, the way it is made over several hundreds of years as part of local economic activities (stones for construction, housing, churches, Castles...).

Blegny-Mine

Located between Liège and Maastricht, Blegny-Mine is one of the four authentic coal mines in Europe with underground galleries accessible for the visitors through the original shaft. Situated at – 30 and – 60 metres, they allow a complete discovery of the process of coal extraction.

Reviewed By GeoTrunk - Denmark

The Blegny Mine offers four separate sights: The Museum, the mine, the slag heap and the road train. The museum is definitely worth seeing - It is a little hard to find since it is hidden all the way to the back with no clear signs (You will pass a shed that you might think is the museum, but carry on a little further to the real thing). A tour of the mine is also interesting - Guided tours seems only to be available in Dutch and French, but you can get a headset in English giving you an abbreviated version. The audio guided tour of the slag heap is not worth spending time on. Climb the hill on your own and enjoy the view. Same goes for the road train. You are better of doing it in your own car, because you can stop when relevant.

Boekhandel Dominicanen

Reviewed By Katrien S - Ghent, Belgium

There are still frescoes on the ceiling of the church, and in the choir there is a popular cafe. Inside, there is a steel construction allowing for more floorspace. The whole concept is very well executed, and well worth a visit. It is not the largest bookshop, and the selection is somewhat limited, at least for books. They do sell a lot of knick knacks and small "hebbedingetjes".
