The master of storytelling, our guide Chantal brought the history of Maastricht alive for us. Learned about the origination of the amazing mass of underground tunnels, how people lived, the history in the limestone from prehistoric times, the salvaging of art during WWII and the discovery of dinosaur bones that supported Darwin’s theory. A must see in Maastricht, bring a fleece as inside temps are 12-14C, had folks w/ canes & in wheelchairs able to navigate. Walk in the total darkness was eerie & exciting. Thanks Chantal!!

The underground caves are actually more a set of hundreds of man made tunnels, part of a quarry.
The tour takes an hour with a guide that gives explanations on the place and it’s history. Our guide was great, unfortunately I don’t remember his name ( something like Jerald or jack:)).
He had great stories. The sketching on the walls are really impressing.
The temperature is around 10-12 degrees Celsius, during our visit it was very hot outside so the cool environment was nice, but recommend to take a jacket.

If you are claustrophobic keep away this is not the place for you!

It was cool seeing what was underground. The lady that was our guide did a nice job too. We were underground for over an hour.

It was a highlight of our trip to Maastricht. The guide kept the mood light and group smiling throughout the trip. The surprise (complete darkness) at the end of the trip was an experience - must see

To start with i had read a lot of good views about it and they all were true. The visit to this cave is must .
If you want to go by train then drop at Maastricht station from there take a bus route 9 though you can ask the bus driver also they are so helpful will tell you all the details . From taxi it will cost 30 or more euro from Maastricht station to the cave. So it's better to take a bus the whole day pass cost 6 euro I think you can take any bus the whole day.
There is an excellent resturant right at the gate of the cave which serves delicious food.
There ceaser salad is amazing. I suggest you eat after the tour relax and enjoy the place.
There is a view point also walking from the cave that also is a must see. You can ask the ticket person he will guide you where to find the place. So if you are late and next group time is after 30 mnts you can see the place.
Over all a must visit to these caves.
