Thorn Village from Maastricht.

Is it possible to get to Thorn Village using public transport from Maastricht city centre? What is the approximate length of time it would take to get there and approximate cost by bus? Is it a half day trip or should I pencil it in as a full day trip? Is it worthwhile?

Finally if there is no public transport, are there organised day excursions?

Thanks

Hi there,

Not that difficult. Use www.9292.nl/en. Basically train to Roermond (some direct and some with transfer) and then bus. Time required in the village is 1-2 hours, but due to the travel time involved (1.5 hours at least) it adds up to slightly over half a day...

All the best,

Train to Roermond then bus to Thorn. It will take you about 90 minutes and cost just over 11euro.

See 9292.nl for all public transport queries in NL.

Never heard of the village or been there so can't comment if it is worth a visit. Looking ar Wikipedia however it certainly doesn't look anything special. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thorn,_Netherlands

It _is_ special, if both the royal family and foreign VIP's get it shown as a prime example of old Limburg architecture, white-clad buildings and cobblestoned streets!

All the best,

Thanks for the website links and additional info. Has anybody actually done the trip from Maastricht. First hand accounts usually add a few recommendations and tips.
