Under the watchful eye of the Town Hall
Nov 2021
A square brimming with life throughout all days and evenings. During market time you could feel the pulse of the local population. The market is interesting in itself.

Beautiful square great for people watching
Jun 2020 • Couples
A lovely square in centre of Maastricht. The town hall is imposing and we loved the melodic bells chiming on the hour. It has lots of little bars and cafes and is lovely to sit in and watch the world go by. Seats can be in the sun or the shade and drink prices reasonable. €5 for a glass of wine. Mr H and I found it had a lovely friendly atmosphere and service at the bars was quick with lots of choice.

Nice market square
May 2020
Nice market in the historic centre. There was indeed a market when we visited, but it looked significantly smaller than usual. I'd also expected more local produce, so value for money wise you'd be better of driving to one of the smaller villages in the area. Nonetheless, the square itself is still beautiful!

Nice Town!
Dec 2019
I loved visiting the square. The town Hall is the main focal point and is very imposing! Lots of restaurants around the square where one can sit and witch people. You can visit the basilica. I enjoyed the view of the architecture of the buildings.

Interesting, but not nearly as beautiful as nearby Vrijthof Square
Dec 2019
Maastricht Market Square is quite big, but due to too many styles of architecture it is too much a mixture of buildings. The good things about it is the fact that it is not that crowded as Vrijthof Square and restaurants are lees full and expensive. On Fridays a big market takes place that is famous for its quality fish.
If you come by car, Markt Maas Parking is nearby. Many city busses stop here too.

Weekly market on Friday.
Dec 2019 • Couples
Great market place with a lot of pubs and restaurants. Typical market offering fruit flowers and other traditional products. Make sure to come early as the parkings are definitely full by noon.
