"Maastricht: the center of Europe" Top 5 Page for this destination Maastricht Favorite Tip by ger4444

Maastricht General: 208 reviews and 266 photos


Favorite thing: 10 th of december 1991 was the day that the famous Maastricht was signed. this treaty constituted the Europenian Union. So, not only geographical but also politically, Maastricht forms the centre of Europe. Holland was president of the council that year. the meeting of the leaders was hosted by Queen Beatrix. In the caves of Chateau Neercanne there is a Birthday card of the coin, the euro, signed by Beatrix and all the countries leaders, carved in marvel. At the chateau the leaders had dinner during the two days of the Eurotop. At the gouvernment building the treaty was signed.
