Vrijthof at Maastricht

The basilica of Saint Servatius and the Main Guard at the Vrijthof in Maastricht are beautifully illuminated during the blue hour. Every year the summer concerts of André Rieu take place here at the Vrijthof, in Maastricht, the city where André Rieu was born. Some nice cafés and restaurants at the Vrijthof make it a cozy place. Also the famous preuvenemint with delicious tasting at a high level (for everyone) takes place here.

Main Guard of Maastricht

The Main Guard of Maastricht (Hoofdwacht) has been used military until 2006. After this, the city of Maastricht has bought the building and it is now in use for expositions and as a wedding location. The Main Guard Building is situated at the Vrijthof next to the Basilica of Saint Servatius. This picture was taken during the blue hour and shows a nice illumination.
