Rieu’s roots


The most famous inhabitant of Maastricht is, without a doubt, the waltz king André Rieu. Together with his Johann Strauss Orchestra, he performs all over the world: from the United States to Japan and every country in between. But every summer he returns to his birthplace and home, the city of Maastricht. Vrijthof Square becomes a backdrop of a huge open-air concert filled with delightful melodies and plenty of romance!
