“St. Pietersberg Caves”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Very interesting experience. We had a great guide who really brought this sight to life. You are walking in a cave so the ground is a bit rough but no problem for almost any traveler who is not disabled. Remember to check ahead of time because not all tours are in English.

“Made our Maastricht visit complete”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

This was a really great activity to do in Maastricht. We went on the english tour-- which was funny, informative and interesting. We learned interesting history and scientific facts and even got to try to walk in the caves in the pitch black dark. I won't ever forget the random facts or amazing coal drawings from the tour. I highly recommend taking the time to go. Its a nice 30 minute walk from the city center.

“Very interesting experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

We went into the caves not really knowing what to expect - I had been in large caves before, but was not aware that the one we would walk into were manmade.
It was a very impressive sight and the guide we had was great in bringing us in touch with the history of the site.

“Great Tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We visited Maastricht last weekend and had a tour of the caves. Our guide, Anton, was fantastic. He has a true passion for his subject and his knowledge of the caves, and of other caves in the area is impressive. One feels a connection with all those who worked in and visited the caves through the ages as you move through the dark passages and see chisel marks and graffiti. The earliest signature we saw was from 1554 - amazing! I get a bit claustrophobic so had to take a few deep breaths as I began to understand what a labyrinth it is and how easily one could get lost. But this is part of the experience! Many thanks!

“Amazing history, great tunnels, awesome informative tour guide, highly recommend.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We got to Maastricht and it was about to rain. We basically ran to the caves for the last english speaking tour and were hoping we did not make a mistake. The Grotten Nord was absolutely worth it. 90 ft below the city the rain didnt matter. You walk through awesome limestone tunnels and learn about the tunnels its mining and how they were used for safety since 1000 b.c. There at 68 degrees, and total darkness are awesome works of art drawn on the walls with coal. There is an interesting history below the city as there is above and you should not miss it!
