read about it in the to-do guide in Maastricht and strolled along there on saturday morning and it was brilliant. It brought back to me the reason why I love reading and why my bookshelves at home are crammed with books. None of this kindle/reading...More

When I was a student this church was used to host big parties (it was already no longer a church) now it is a book store. The book collection, though huge, is not terrific. But the location is. So if you are a tourist in...More

Great response. A consultant on hand to locate the book and a follow up call to announce its very prompt arrival in the store. Finally a beautifully gift wrapped book to take back to Australia.

wonderful place to be in the very center of Maastricht. The book store has been created in an old church. The frescos are still visible. Good selection of books. The café is very popular and serves excellent coffee and try their cheese cake!

What a beautiful setting for a book store! Europeans are going to church less and less every year so many churches are being sold or turned into something else. This one is a bookstore and it is stunning. They also have a nice collection.

Fantastic. Great book selection. Superb cafe. Amazing atmosphere and imaginative use of a redundant church.

Enjoyed visiting this bookshop. The pity is that their selection of English-language books is confined to fiction and a few others. Considering the number of tourists visiting the place (most, no doubt, charmed by the idea of bookshop-cum-church) there should be a larger selection of...More

This is the most impressive bookstore I've ever seen. It is interesting to experience what you can do with an unused church building without really destroying the original architecture.
