For Burgundian pleasure you go to South Limburg. That's nothing new. And besides all the art exhibitions and hiking tours between the mountains, there is much more to experience. For young and old, for families and couples or groups of friends and colleagues. Someone will not soon forget a trip to the southernmost point of the Netherlands. Especially if you attend one of these events! So have a lot of fun this late summer in Limburg. You can find all the fun here in this blog!

Going to Limburg soon? Bastion Hotels has hotels in Geleen, Maastricht and Heerlen. View the hotels here!

Festival Maas

'Looking for Mestrechter Geis..'. Any idea what that means? Experience it during the bustling Festival Maas in the center of Maastricht! The 'Mestrechter Geis' is the local character trait of the Maastricht resident: with a sense of humor and relativity. The theme of the four-day festival is immediately clear: just conviviality! If you had another weekend in Maastricht planned, this is your sign. A combination of art, sports, theatre, knowledge and music will flood the city. Also the city where all of Limburg and the surrounding area come together for a weekend of fun! And if you find Mestrechter Geis, please let us know ;)!

Date: September 8 to September 11, 2022
Location: Vrijthof Maastricht

The days are diverse and something for everyone.

The DMFF is an excellent outing for the healthy outdoors person, the avid mountaineer and interested film buff.
