Originally this was an extensive network (over 200 kms) of mining tunnels. Local farmers dug the tunnels and carved out blocks of limestone for their own building material and also to sell. During the war these tunnels were used to hide refugees (including Jews), and...More

The pictures you can find inside are unexpected! The caves and the fort are relationated, so I advise you to do both visits. Into the caves the ambient temperature is 11 degrees... you will need a good jacket!

If you are here this is a must for everyone. To see what was done in years past and how people built things in a cave was amazing. The bake shop is etched in my mind. Absolutely must go to believe what is down there....More

We had a great tour lead by Michel. It was amazing to be at the place were some of the stones of the Cologne cathedral come from. A must when visiting Maastricht.

The visit is nice, you learn some 'horror' stories from the caves and that is really interesting. You can also do the total black experience where you literally see absolutely nothing during like one minute which is very exicting and funny. Be aware that is...More

I recommend these caves, they are near the city centre and down there you can feel a different and mysterious atmosphere. The guide was great and the wall paintings... incredible. A perfect trip if you are looking for something different and unique.

The website has three options (plus a combined tour) - the North Caves, Zonneberg Caves and Casemates. Which would you recommend? Is the fact that we're using public transport from Maastricht city center a factor in deciding?
