About
Our Highlight tour of about 1,5 hours (± 6 kms) takes you along the most important and interesting sites in Maastricht. This nice route in one of the oldest and most beautiful cities of The Netherlands leads you along squares and watermills, over city walls, along small picturesque alleys, old town gates and through different parks. Our tour which is nearly free from traffic, is really worthwhile! During several short stops you get an extensive explanation about the sights, hear some anecdotes and we'll give you hints to enjoy the city best after the tour as well.

Sunset city run
Sep 2021 • Solo
Had a great time on this intro into the city. Raoul was easy to contact and tailored the pace and amount of tourism vs straight running to what I was looking for. He knew a lot about the town’s history as well as had some great recommendations for my time in Maastricht. Had a lovely conversation between stopping points too.

Tour ended with a beautiful sunset run across the bridge! Highly recommend !

The best way to start your trip in Maastricht is to do a running tour
Raoul was an amazing guide! He was super friendly and very informative telling us about the history, architecture and makeup of the city. He is clearly very proud of his Maastricht heritage. Raoul showed us places in the city we would never have seen wandering around on our own. Running was a really fun way to cover more ground than walking. I would throughly recommend this tour you will not be disappointed.

Amazing way to see Maastricht
May 2021 • Solo
The weather forecast was predicting rain, but I signed up for a morning run the day before just in case. I was happy that I did. Within hours my run was confirmed and the next morning the clouds temporarily cleared just in time for us to start running.

Raoul took me on a 6km run throughout the city and pointed out things that I would never would have known or seen on my own. In fact, more than once locals were listening in to hear his stories. He is a great storyteller and mixed history with present events with ease.

Maastricht is a beautiful city full of history, sadness and celebration. I recommend going for run early with Maastricht Running Tours (before the tourists and shoppers come out) and then taking time to relax on one of the many cute terraces with lunch and a drink - and see the city on a new way.

It was a great way to spend a Sunday.

The tour is one of the activities I would definitely recommend to do in Maastricht, it’s easy to follow and suitable for every runner, regardless of experience. The tour offers you a different perspective of the city while also doing your workout.

Aug 2020 • Couples
Such a fun thing to do. I’ve lived in Maastricht for about a year now but didn’t know much of the history. Raoul was so knowledgeable and excited to show us places and tell us about the history. He not only told us about historical facts he also showed us some of his favorite places to eat and local shops he likes.
I run on occasion but wouldn’t consider myself a runner. Raoul kept an easy pace that I could keep up with. Plus all the stops to talk about things made it very enjoyable.
I highly recommend to do the running tour, even if you’ve lived in Maastricht for a long time.

Great tour through Maastricht
Nov 2019
I took part in an organised highlights of Maastricht running tour and it was lots of fun. Even though I have been living in Maastricht for quite some time, Raoul surprised with showing some hidden germs of Maastricht! He is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the city and shares a lot of stories and information. He also made sure everyone could keep up and was comfortable with the speed of the group. I would highly recommend going on a running tour, either to get a glimpse of the city or to explore it further.

This is such a nice way to explore a city! I can absolutely recommend Raoul and his Maastricht Running Tours-team. You can combine a guided tour with a workout, what more do you want when in a new city?
Go book one for yourself!
