Lay of the Land
Maastricht is in the south of the Netherlands, bordering Belgium and Germany. The Meuse River runs through the center with the Old City (including Onze Lieve Vrouweplein and Maastricht Convention Center—the site of TEFAF) as well as most of the city’s hotels, shops and restaurants on the west bank. To the east of the river, lies the Bonnefanten Museum and the train station.
Maastricht-Aachen airport (about six miles from the city center) is a small, regional airport. Most visitors fly to Amsterdam and then drive approximately two hours (or take a three-hour train) south to Maastricht. There are also flights into Düsseldorf, Eindhoven and Brussels, which are all a one hour drive from Maastricht.
