Mentioned for the first time in 1375, after a number of destructions and ownership changes, the present Neo-Gothic castle dating from 1894 has not much in common with its initial building. (more…)
It is still a subject of dispute whether the located on both sides of the Meuse/Maas River Maastricht is the oldest or the second oldest (next to Nijmegen) city in the Netherlands. It is the second to Amsterdam regarding the number of heritage sites.
