Beforehand I was like "caves......boring" but after the first few minutes in I was amazed by the background and stories told by our guide. The extensive subterrainean limestone quarries hold some neat history and are a must see when in Maastricht! Be sure to take your jacket with you because 10 degrees for a hour (total tour time) could spoil... More

This is a very interesting location. We had a local guide who explained everything to us in English language and was also happy to answer questions. It was a great experience and I would definetly recommend the tour to everybody visiting Maastricht! Andreas

an interesting view of underground Maastricht. Great tour guide. Try to go in the morning as so many people are trying to get in later in the day. Not for tall people (>200cm)

I booked a combination trip (for the caves and the fort), definitely worthy ;) It took me less than 40 mins walking from old town to the caves, which was not so far. The caves was pretty amazing, ancient and huge. Plus, if you do attend the fort trip, you might be able to get to the highest point of... More

The caves are well worth a visit they are 10 degrees so take warm clothing. They are dark and we were designated with the light for the group which was good. interesting and lovely pictures on the walls. We did this trip with the boat trip from town. Excellent overall.

Follow the directions to Fort St. Pieter and go all the way up the hill to the cafe, where you can buy your tickets for 6 euros a piece. We followed the on-line advice and arrived in time to purchase tickets for the 12:30 English speaking tour. The hour tour was excellent, providing us with ample history, information, cautions, as...

Firstly, these are not caves, these are mines, which at one time extended to over 200km. Hearing the story of the mines, seeing a small portion of this vast network, and seeing the tool marks and drawings from miners and visitors dating back over 700 years is a must on a visit to Maastricht.
