Our own city walk starts on the Sint Servaas Bridge, the oldest bridge in the Netherlands. The bridge connects the center with the beautiful old district of Wyck, on the right bank of the Maas.
In the nice Wycker Brugstraat with its special addresses you can walk right past Bouchon D\\\'en Façe. A bouchon is a restaurant that originated in the 17th and 18th centuries in Lyon. Traditional dishes such as steak tartare, rillette de porc, confit de canard and moelleux au chocolat are served in a bouchon. And good wine!

A little further you walk past Bistrot-bar't Wycker Cabinet, also inspired by French cuisine. Be sure to try the coq au Riesling!

NOVO New Dining is a bit out of the way but worth it. In a modern setting, Rodny Welters and his ambitious team present dishes based on his many travels, without losing sight of classic French cuisine. This global view also ensures a wide variety of wines.
Near the station you will discover restaurant SoDelicious, with its own patisserie and caterer. Two steps further you will find Umami by Han, a modern Chinese Fusion restaurant led by chef Han Ji. It's all about social dining here, because sharing food brings people closer together. An important starting point in Chinese culture.

Restaurant Le Courage can be found in the nice Rechtstraat. A cozy restaurant owned by a hospitable, creative Englishman. The dishes, prepared with seasonal products, are presented at the table by the patron himself with a lot of'passion for food\\\' with an oral explanation. Take a look at the wine list!

If you follow the Rechtstraat all the way to the end, you will arrive at Plein 1992 where you will find Beluga loves you. The culinary hotspot of the city, owned for a few years by former sous-chef Servais Tielman. A culinary declaration of love according to Michelin (1 star).
Café Zuid is a nice place to sit on a terrace on a modern pond, with a view of the Maas and the Bonnefantenmuseum.

Back on the left bank, you can explore Maastricht's Latin Quarter: the Jekerkwartier. Grab a terrace on Onze Lieve Vrouweplein - as if you were suddenly in a French town. On the spot where the Basilica of Our Lady now stands, there was already a church in the 5th century. In the base of the west work, two huge stones can still be found, which come from the Roman fort. It is a fine example of Romanesque architecture.

Just north of the square, Restaurant Rozemarijn brings a touch of Zeeland to the heart of Maastricht. Chef Jeroen likes to combine his Zeeland roots with local products and creates surprising flavor combinations from Flemish, Eastern, Arabic and Italian cuisine with a creative swing. Be surprised by'the chef with the glasses\\\' and taste the salty taste of the sea.

Cross the square to the south again and dive into the Koestraat, to Via Mucca. In this cozy wine bar, carefully selected wines are displayed in a cabinet along the wall. Owner Esther and her team do everything they can to find the right wine for you and serve it with a small snack.

Stop for a pie at the Bisschopsmolen, a real windmill in the city. Nearby you walk under the Helpoort, a medieval city gate complete with towers. Nearby you can enjoy a nice meal at Café Sjiek. Not chic, but'chic\\\' in Limburgs style: just a nice place.

Just down the street you will find Masters in Wine. A wine tasting here is always a surprise, with 450 wines! They also have Wine Flights, small themed tastings of three tasting glasses.

You enter the Jekerpark through a gate in the city wall. Fancy something special? In the Waldeck Park, Maastricht Underground takes you on a discovery of the underground casemates, a gigantic extensive system of corridors. In the Aldenhofpark you walk past the monument of d\\\'Artagnan - the famous musketeer was killed here.

Nearby you can browse around at Vojacek Wijnen, a quality importer in the niche. They consciously do not go along with the masses. You will find a fascinating collection of aromatic wines in Burgundy style, mainly from France.

Then you walk back into the center. You walk past the Huys Op Den Jeker, a seventeenth-century house built over the water. You will discover a special address at the atmospheric Ezelmarkt. Au Coin Des Bons Enfants is a mix between classic and modern in the hands of the new owners Timo Reichelt and Lino de Vrede. The serene, fresh decor draws all the attention to your plate and your taste buds.

Wine restaurant Mes Amis, just around the corner in the nice Tongersestraat, is a must for wine lovers. Here wine is not only an important part of your dinner, but also a source of inspiration for the kitchen brigade. They first select the regional wines and create refined dishes with the finest products from local suppliers. The matching Limburg wine arrangement is highly recommended. Hostess and viticulturist Annaline, together with regional winemakers, creates her own cuvées that regularly win prizes!

Take a look at the Kruisheren restaurant, on a floor in the church of the Kruisherenhotel Maastricht. A wine bar with an above-ground wine cellar has been realized in the choir of the former church: Wine Bar Rouge & Blanc. In good weather, the wine bar also serves on the terrace.

Then take a look at the Treasury St. Servaas, in the basilica of the same name on the Vrijthof. Here you will find the treasures of Maastricht. Then drop by Bookstore Dominicanen, in a medieval church.
Restaurant 55 is located in the nice historic streets just south of the main shopping street. With a nice extensive wine list! If you continue to the Meuse you will arrive at BRANDSØN. With a Scandinavian atmosphere, but influences from all over the world. If you would like to sit at the chef\\\'s table, please mention this when making your reservation. During this unique experience you will enjoy a complete six-course dinner including an aperitif, wine pairing and coffee or tea.

You walk past the Markt and the town hall to Thiessen Wijnkoopers, with its own city vineyard. As if you are on holiday in France, especially if you also take a tour of the wine cellars. In the beautiful wine shop (300 years old, the oldest in the Netherlands!) you will see a strong emphasis on the classic European wine regions. Every good vintage they buy red wine in France that they bottle themselves. A special cuvée, which they assemble themselves, together with the winegrower. Your own Thiessen wine!

Then you walk through the nice Boschstraat with its many cafes to the Bassin. A newly developed district around the former Sphinx factory. Here there is a Mediterranean atmosphere with the terraces on the water. On the eighth floor of the iconic Eiffel building you will find Bold Rooftopbar, with a beautiful view of the city from the roof terrace.

Right on the water of the Bassin is Les 3 Seaux, a fish restaurant with only the best that the sea has to offer. The Fruits de Mer plateau is the specialty, delicious with a glass of wine. You can easily walk back along the Maas to the starting point of the walking route.
