The Wijck area lies between the railwaystation and the Maas, river opposite the old citycentre. The name Wijck comes originally from the Roman word ' Vicus', meaning suburb. This area at the eastern side of the river Maas was a suburban area in the Roman times.
In Wijck you can find some wide avenues lined with trees and large houses. Walking here gives you the feeling being in Brussel or Paris. In Wijck you can find some interesting restaurants and shops. At saturday there is a market at the Stationsstraat.
Wijck was also known by a brewery, where they produced the so-called Wieckse Witte (closed down in 2003). Its one of my favourite beers, though I red in a report 'sweetish, with an unpleasant chewing-gum flavour'. Just try it youself..
Directions: Eastbank of the Maas.
