Maastricht is a city in the Netherlands, located on the Meuse River.

The city developed around a bridge built by the Romans in the 1st Century AD. The possibility that Maastricht may be the oldest city in the Netherlands is a topic of dispute.

Today, Maastricht is known for combining small town charm with city life, its quaint side streets, and its large number of world heritage sites - the second highest in the country after Amsterdam.
