The stokstraat nowadays is some of the most expensive shoppingstreets in Holland. This neighboorhood used to be a red light district in the old days (some ages ago) ! Now you find little shops, boutiques and liitle café's in this erea. It contains many old buildings and when you pass through the little alleys that are between the houses, you find yourself suddenly in pictoresc little courtyards, surrounded by the green of the trees. In the Stokstraat you can also find the "smalles" pub of the Netherlands: de Mondriaan. A café that has a surface of only a few square meters. Finaly, in this street you will find the statue of "The mestreechter Geis" very important for the Maastricht people, for it symbolizes the spirit of Maastricht.
