Shopping in Maastricht
Maastricht is a city where fashion lovers can shop to their heart’s content. Not only are all the basic fashion brands established here, there are also many surprising boutiques with unique pieces of clothing. Although Maastricht is a big city with a population of 122,000, visitors to Limburg’s capital will discover it is easily accessible, with many charming districts that each have their own distinctive character. We’ve provided a brief description below so you know what to expect!
If you travel to Maastricht by train, your shopping adventure will start in Wyck.

The Stokstraat district is one of Maastricht’s most up-market neighbourhoods. Shoppers looking for exclusive brands have come to the right place here!
