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.

St. Servatius Bridge – Maastricht

The St. Servatius Bridg (Dutch: Sint Servaasbrug, locally known as ‘Aw Brögk’) is a stone bridge from the 13th century. It is probably the oldest still working bridge in the Netherlands. It connects the old city of Maastricht over the river Maas with Wyck, the part of the city where the train station can be found. This bridge is only for cyclists and pedestrians.

Gouvernement Maastricht

In this building, functioning as the Province Hall of the Dutch province Limburg) in Maastricht at the Maas reside the Provinciale Staten (parliament of the province Limburg) and the Gedeputeerde Staten (Government of the province Limburg). The chairman is called Gouverneur, but only in the province Limburg. His official title is the King’s Commissioner.

This picture was taken during the blue hour and shows this interesting building with the river Maas in the foreground. The illumination reflects in the Maas beautifully giving some extra colour and light.
