Shopping

Most Dutch people travel to Maastricht for a day out or a shopping day. It is the most favourite city when it comes to a Dutch shopping city trip. Enjoy the shopping and culture, sleep in fun hotels and make the Burgundy city your own.

The centre of Maastricht welcomes you with a wide range of exclusive and specialized shops in art, antiques, fashion, design and delicatessen. The centre has a lot to offer for a day out, shopping or a romantic weekend. The shopping part of the centre and the Stokstraatkwartier with famous boutiques like Kiki Niesten, the Onze Lieve Vrouwenplein with the Basilica, the old city walls, the Jekerkwartier and Vrijthof square with the famous Selexyz bookstore located in the old Dominicaner church in Maastricht.
 
The city of Maastricht is known for its many attractions and is loved for its shopping and entertainment. A lot of large and small shopping streets, department stores, malls and markets make this area one of the most enjoyable and beautiful destinations.
 
Maastricht
Maastricht is the best city for shopping. You can find everything here: large shopping streets and chic malls but also little boutiques and picturesque streets can be found in the capital city of Limburg. Shopping is extremely nice in the new malls Entre Deux en Mosae Forum which are both situated in the city centre, close to the Market Square. Not only the inner city is nice, also the roads towards the centre are lined with little shops of all sizes.
 
Coming from the Hip Hotel and the train station, you can take the Wycker Brugstraat and make your way to the centre. Before you cross the Meuse via the Sint Servaasbrug (Saint Servatiusbridge), don’t forget to take a look in the Rechtstraat and Hoogbrugstraat. These two quiet streets have many small shops and special restaurants where the general public not often comes. Enjoy the little things in life.
 
After crossing the Saint Servatiusbridge, the centre lies ahead of you. You can visit the picturesque Stokstraatkwartier where luxurious boutiques, restaurants and accessory shops are located. You can saunter through the cobblestone streets. And of course we will not forget the large shopping streets where all the large brands are represented. These are the Grote Staat, Kleine Staat and Maastrichter Brugstraat. Not only the main streets but also the side streets are fun with lots of surprises which makes shopping so relaxing and such a treat.
 
Every Thursday the shops are open late, most shops are open then until 9 p.m. Maastricht also has Sunday opening once every month with a higher frequency in the festive season. That means more shopping in this cozy and nice city. The next Sunday opening in the centre will be on:

Liège has a lot of shops and is an undiscovered gem in Wallonia. Liège offers a mix of modern and older arts and has a beautiful city centre. Liège does not have late night shopping and neither does it have Sunday opening hours, but every Sunday the weekly market is held on the banks of the river Meuse, just outside the city centre.
 
Eupen has lovely shops spread across the upper and lower city parts. Just like Liège, Eupen does not have late night shopping or Sunday opening hours.
 
Germany
Aachen is one of the largest shopping cities by far. This city has, just like Maastricht, many large shopping streets but also small picturesque streets. Aachen also has several malls with famous brands. As in most other German cities, Aachen doesn’t have late night shopping. Moreover, on Saturdays the stores close early in the afternoon. Sunday is a day of rest but sometimes the stores have a Sunday opening.
