The Limburg province is a great place to eat (the sausages are particularly notable) and drink (the region is famous for its local beers), and treats for sights and senses are plentiful at Maastricht-Hill Country and in the museums and castles throughout the district. Its culture has many German and Belgian influences as the province slices into both countries.
The region's capital, Maastricht, is situated along the Maas River and is very popular among travelers for its university town charm, its Burgundic restaurants and pubs and its outlying hills and landscapes. It's quite small (120,000) as established, historic European cities go, but the fewer crowds allow for a more intimate experience for the traveler enjoying the market square, the Saint Servaas bridge, the Vrihthof or any other of the city's landmarks.
Also located on the Maas is Roermond, a smallish city with plenty of attractions including the Sint Christoffel Cathedral which has weathered Nazi occupation and an earthquake but still stands proudly; Munsterkerk, built in the Roman style by a female group of Cistercians; and the National Indie Moment to veterans of fighting in Indonesia after World War II.
The Dutch parks and lodges offer the perfect escape from the day's adventures and refueling for tomorrow.
