  While sitting in Our Lady Square
by stoto

Whenever anyone visits Maastricht, they always grab lunch or dinner in the famous Vrijthof. Don't get me wrong, the food is delicious and the atmosphere is euphoric, but it can get a bit expensive. A better option is to tour the city (or ask) to find Our Lady Square. It is another square which is smaller than the Vrijthof, but the food is just as good and if you stop for a moment and look around, you'll feel nice and relaxed. --
The Vrijthof is right next to the street, so you'll see bus tours, motorscooters, bicycles and cars going past. It can get loud sometimes. But in Our Lady Square, the only thing that comes by is the occasional car because it's tucked away off the main streets. It's cheaper, too! --
When I first arrived in the city, our tour guide told us that Our Lady Square was voted as the best Square in the Netherlands in 2005.
