The Netherlands - Maastricht & Southeastern Netherlands (PDF Chapter)
This is the Maastricht & Southeastern Netherlands chapter from Lonely Planet’s Netherlands guidebook.
Things are different below the rivers. Product of their embattled histories (the Rhine formed the Romans’ northern border), the provinces of Noord Brabant and Limburg have a distinctly southern character: more Catholic, more relaxed and, in the case of Limburg, hillier.
- thrill in the good life of Maastricht, a world apart from the north, and go bonkers at the annual Carnaval
- explore the unusual canals of lively Den Bosch and decode the myriad messages in the artwork at the Jheronimus Bosch Art Center
- hop off your bike or train to tour Breda and its beautiful Gothic church
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Maastricht, Around Maastricht, North Limburg, Noord Brabant, Den Bosch (’s-Hertogenbosch), Around Den Bosch, Eindhoven, Tilburg, Breda and Bergen op Zoom.
