  • This a unique experience and a must do in Maastricht. These caves are built to extract limestone in old ages. The tunnels extend for a vast area in the hill. The guide was very informative about the history about the place. We booked the English language tour. There were 16 people for the tour. Tour takes just over an hour and was very interesting. Ticket was 9.50 per person and was well worth it.
  • Very amazing experience. Loved the history behind the caves. I was super impressed to know the complexity behind the formation of caves. I will highly recommend to visit this place if you are around.
