World famous because of the Maastricht Treaty that basically created the European Union and the single European currency, and thanks to the TEFAF (The European Fine Art Fair), the most prestigious art fair in the world. The city of Maastricht is well-loved for its feeling of intimacy: it is compact, easy to navigate and everything is at walking distance. As one of the top 4 Dutch conference cities centrally located in Europe and the Euregion Meuse-Rhine, it has truly European dimension and this is what sets it apart from other Dutch cities. The city centre has a rich cultural history and picturesque medieval streets, beautiful squares and old churches. And yet, Maastricht is an entirely modern city with many accommodation options (over 4.000 hotel rooms!), an international environment, top international universities and colleges in 50km radius and 8 airports reachable within just 1 hour. You can get to Brussels in less than 1 hour, Amsterdam in 2, Paris and Frankfurt in 3 and London in 4,5.
Situated between the rolling hills of the wonderful countryside, Maastricht lies at the heart of a EU-region of 4 million people who live in 3 countries and speak 4 languages.The energy that this generates has resulted in a city that bursts with creativity, researchers and innovators. It’s a city where people meet and enjoy the way of living in a burgundy atmosphere, with great allure. In short: Maastricht has all it takes to provide the best circumstances for a successful international conference.
