Reaching Maastricht from Delhi-best way

Hi, I want to reach Maastricht from Delhi, India in the best possible & cheap way. Can i fly from Delhi to Paris and then take a train from Paris to Maastricht? I will be one my own and travelling through Europe for the first time. Is it advisable?

Forget Paris. Take a direct KLM flight to Amsterdam and train from there to Maastricht. You can also look at Jetair to Brussels and then ground transportation from there.

If you must fly to Paris (but I certainly wouldn't recommend it), you can take a Thalys train from Paris Gare du Nord to Liege Guillemins and transfer there to a a slow regional train (once per hour) from Liege to Maastricht.

If you land at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, take an intercity train to Sittard (its final destination is Heerlen) and change trains in Sittard for another 15 minutes to Maastricht. But that only works if your plane arrives before 7pm or so; otherwise the train journey becomes more complicated.

Every 30 minutes you can take a train to Utrecht and change there as well as taking the train to Sittard.

I would recommend flying to either Dusseldorf or Brussels as it's often cheaper than Amsterdam. From Brussels it's fairly easy to reach Maastricht by train with one change in Liege (it's actually closer than Amsterdam). Also, Brussels is a hub for Jet Airways which might get you better deals.

Only thing is from Brussels you have to take a train to Leuven then change at Liege. Only one more change but yes indeed about 45 minutes less than from AMS and cheaper.

Taxi from Frankfurt??? You've got to be joking.

Why would people want to spend hundreds on a taxi when we have a perfectly good train system???

I'd probably forget about Frankfurt because it's further away and the train journey isn't very straightforward (would have no problems with it myself, but I've been using trains in Europe all my life). Brussels, Amsterdam and Düsseldorf are all sensible options.
