By far my favorite bookstore ever. If you are in Maastricht it is a must see!! It offers Dutch books, english books, many different languages. It has a coffee shop at the back & lots of space to just relax.

At the core of the old city, this space is wonderfully set up and welcoming in a mix of old & new that works. Take your time and enjoy.

This book store has a cafe inside. It was built as a cathedral, and gives a distinctive atmosphere. Must try if you are in Maastricht.

It is really weird from me (coming from Portugal) to see a church turned into a library, because our population still has a lot of conservative values (very catholic) and to procrastinate (in their view) religious grounds would be something never thought of. But the...More
