A very nice looking place. Is there such a thing as an ugly place in the Netherlands? If there is, I have yet to see one.

Thanks for yor reactions.

@Paul62
Thanks for the compliment. In my opinion the most cities in the Netherlands are quite nice, but some cities are less nice and a bit boring. Of course every city in the Netherlands has also some places that are quite ugly. Also Maastricht got some ugliness :

things that make me love this city are those medieval structures,the cobbled-stoned lanes and the vibrancy of the city center.
the cathedral-turned-bookstore is another story.

Maastricht is a beautiful city. I studied abroad there in Spring of 2009 and have so many great memories. The student life there is vibrant with Universiteit Maastricht and the Center for European Studies. One of my favorite memories was Carnival - it's the best city for Carnival in the Netherlands. I need to get back there soon!

I gotta admit I've always had that thing for Maastricht, the vibe is totally different there than it is in Holland, much more German/French on the streets because of visitors from neighboring Liege and Aachen. And it's so close to the Eifel and the Ardennes...

Very nice pictures!

Do you have more? I remember that Maastricht also had some interesting modern architecture like the Bonefanten museum (which is worth a visit).
