When you have 24 hours in a day you can do so much. I give you all my secret insider tips for the beautiful city of Maastricht. What to do when you are 24 hours in Maastricht.
Start the day right
One of my favorite spots in Maastricht is situated in the popular Wijck- area. Cafe Zondag is the spot to have a quick breakfast before starting the day. Have a simple croisant or eat a sandwich. This is also a nice place just to have a glass of wine in the evening.

Breakfast in church, it’s possible in Maastricht. Coffeelovers has several bars all over Maastricht but the one in the curch is the mustvisit. Coffeelovers offers delicious coffee, bagels, smoothies and other breakfast-thingies!

Shopping in Maastricht
After a nice breakfast you should do some shopping. If you are looking for designerwear you should visit the area- Wyck with stylesuite. But also stokstraat with Aim, Nikkie and Shoebaloo offer all sorts of designer wear. Maastricht is also blessed with de Bijenkorf, H&M, Vans, Zara,.. all budgetfriendly alternatives. But do hop in in the little stores. They often have amazing fashionitems.
After shopping you can have a meal in De brandweer. They offer a menu that changes each day! The menu is ecofriendly and different! You have to try it. Watch out they do not take reservations.
The best burgers in town are at Burgerlijk, in Rechtstraat 37.
The best thai-food can be found in the same street. Visit tabkeaw if you like spicy food and amazing springrolls.
The loving hut is the place to be if you want Vegan food. It’s not situated in the centre so it’s a bit a pitty that you have to search for it at the Scharnerstraat.
24 hours in Maastricht
We did not stay in the centre of Maastricht. We stayed in hotel Gulpenerland. A nice, cosy hotel with wellness facilities. The hotel is situated near Maastricht and Aken. Ideal if you want to visit both places. The hotel has another option, you can also stay in the middle of the centre at Vrijthof.
