Maastricht, Andre Rieu's beloved hometown.

For the third year in a row, Andre Rieu will host 3 open-air concerts (July 6, 7 and 8) in his hometown of

Since these concerts start at 21:30 (9:30PM), there is plenty of time to discover Maastricht and it's surroundings.
Maastricht is one of the oldest cities in The Netherlands and it is founded by the Romans.
Traces of this Roman history are still present today.

Ineke and Ruud have complied 2 walks, one through the inner city and the second will lead to the St. Pietersberg.
Both walks will also include places related to Andre. .
