"Small town worth an hour or more" Sittard by gkitzmil

Sittard Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 22 photos


The tour books bypass Sittard -- and it is true that in nearly every European city you find nice churches and buildings. But having extra time we took about 1 1/2 hours while changing trains in Sittard.

Actually we could have taken 2 or more hours just for a nice walk! Sittard is the second oldest town in Limburg and one of the oldest in the Netherlands!

The Market had some lovely buildings surrounding it.


There are three main churches worth seeing in Sittard -- St. Mathhew, St. Peter's and Our Lady's basilica. In addition the old city is surrounded by a small wall. While the wall is not really impressive you can easily walk around half of it in ten minutes!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Small city with history
  • Cons:Not the city to be first on your list
  • In a nutshell:a good place for a train layover
