Magical Maastricht

Accessibility during Magical Maastricht

This year's edition of Magical Maastricht will be held from Friday 1 December 2017 to 1 January 2018. Throughout December, we will have some great deals for you to travel to Maastricht and events, so you can avoid traffic.

By bicycle

We're calling on all Maastricht residents to travel by bicycle as often as possible. Park your bicycle in the sheltered parking facilities on Markt, Kesselskade, or in the underground facility at the main railway station.

By bus

The bus will take you quickly and easily to Maastricht city centre from various districts within the city, the Heuvelland region, surrounding Belgian cities and villages, and from Aachen. Plan your journey via Arriva's website or on www.9292ov.nl. Pay for your trip with your public transport pass (OV-chipkaart), buy a ticket online ahead of your trip, or pay in the bus. 

By train 

The city centre of Maastricht is easy to reach with the Arriva and NS trains, the Arriva train from Aachen, and the international connections from Belgium. Public transport ensures you can comfortably travel to Maastricht, arrive in the middle of the city centre, and avoid any trouble parking your car.

By car

If you decide to travel to the Maastricht city centre by car, be sure to have a look at our Smart Map before you leave. The Smart Map will show you where traffic is busy and where you can find parking. To make things easier for you, we've got a few parking tips:

  • We recommend parking on the side of the Meuse river that you are coming from, to avoid traffic congestion on the bridges over the Meuse.
  • Park at P+R Maastricht Noord for free. From there, you can travel to the city centre quickly and cheaply (a day return is €2 per person, and the group fare for 3-5 people is €5) on bus numbers 10 and 30.
  • Park at the Park+Walk sites Stadspark or Frontenpark. On Saturdays and Sundays, the Bonnefanten car park is also a P+W location. You pay a daily rate of €6.60 at the Stadspark P+W car park and €9 at the Frontenpark and Bonnefanten P+W car parks.
    • Construction works Stadspark: construction works will be carried out at Stadspark car park in November and December. These construction works are necessary because Q-Park will be the new property manager of the car park. The car park will be fitted with barriers and other features. During the construction works, fewer car parking spaces will be available on weekdays. During the weekends and during the Christmas holidays (21 December - 5 January)  no construction work will take place and all car parking spaces will be available. 
  • If you want to make sure there's a parking spot for you, you can reserve one in De Colonel, Bassin or Frontenpark car parks (run by Q-Park). Please visit Q-Park's website to make a reservation.
