Magical Maastricht: A wonderful gift!
29 November - 30 December 2014
Magical Maastricht is celebrating on a grand scale this year with plenty of holiday gifts.
You'll find the biggest surprises on the Vrijthof square, where a huge ice skating rink, a Christmas market, a grand carousel, and a big wheel will provide plenty of Christmas cheer and wintry fun. In fact, you'll find this magical holiday mood all over the city centre, where the squares, streets, and courtyards are filled to the brim with fun activities. And the Magical Culture Festival will provide lots of special moments in theatres and cultural institutes as well as in the streets! Enjoy the vast range of unique shops seven days a week, and feast your eyes on the decorative shop windows and the delightful Christmas market.
The Vrijthof square is one of the many bustling centres of activity, full of winter fun and Christmas spirit. As the beating heart of Magical Maastricht, it will play host to a large skating rink, a Christmas market, a grand carousel, and a big wheel. There is a magical atmosphere in all the streets, squares and courtyards in the city centre, complemented by beautifully decorated shop windows, inviting shoppers in from the cold. Combined with the 'joie de vivre' found in the many restaurants, cafés, and winter terraces, and the many special moments of the Magic Culture Festival, this makes Maastricht a heart-warming destination this winter!
