Celebrate your Christmas days on a grand scale at Magical Maastricht!
A warm atmosphere at Magical Maastricht
Maastricht is well known for its warm atmosphere at any time of the year, but during December it is extra special with Magical Maastricht!
With plenty of Christmas cheer and wintry fun activities, an enchanting holiday mood will fill the city centre’s squares, streets, and courtyards.
Magical Maastricht on the Vrijthof Square
The Vrijthof Square is the place to be for the biggest attractions of Magical Maastricht, such as a huge Ferris wheel, the Alpine-inspired chalet (‘Almhütte’), a huge sheltered ice skating rink and a Christmas market.
The whole square will be transformed into a winter wonderland where you can admire the city skyline from the Ferris wheel, or ride a grand carousel decorated with charming Maastricht scenes.
The Magical Culture Festival
Fans of theatre, dance, music, and expositions will find plenty of cultural gifts at the Magical Culture Festival.
In theatres and cultural institutes as well as in the streets, a variety of fascinating national and international music and interesting expositions will appear.
The Magical Light Route
Follow the Magical Light Route to experience the city’s unique light spectacle. Fantastic chandeliers decorate the squares and shopping centres, and the illuminated St Servaas bridge will delight many a pedestrian.
During the festival, the Onze Lieve Vrouweplein will showcase a breath-taking animated light show with 200 mistletoe-shaped lamps on the trees.
