Maastricht General: 208 reviews and 266 photos


Favorite thing: south of Geleen you arrive at Beek. Here you can visit the Heemkunde museum. You find ceramic foundings, agricultural crafts, tools, the building Huize Gensbroek is also a must-see. A mansion with a park in English style. Of curse, being near the airport you can opt for a flight above the province. Contact Air Service Limburg (043-3646949). Near beek is Spaubeek, which is known for the farm Stammnehof. This farm dates from 1669 and is located near the Stammenderbos, a forest on a hill, inviting for good hiking. The next stop is Schinnen. Huis Terborgh is a striking house, old and in mansion style. Those who like beer can visit the alfa-brewery and those who like syrup can enter Canisius stroop factory, which is located nexto the railway. It is a traditional family factory, run by the family Henssen, who happen to be family of me. Near Schinnen you find Doenrade. The caste there is just renovated and with its picturesque farmhouses in the surrounding, this village looks beautiful. The castle was since 1200 inhabited by the family Van Dobbelsteijns tot Doenreadt and the nobe men in the court over there used to play an important role in the historty of Limburg.
