We combined this with a tour of the fort, and the kazematten. Our Dutch guide (I believe his name was Jean?) was amazing. Because we were a quick group he was able to take us to 'de kluis', the former keeping-place of all the Dutch national art treasures during the second world war. He showed us where they used to...

I've done the caves tour 3 times and each one has been different, and amazing. Definitely a must do if you're in Maastricht. The St. Pietersberg plateau is also a beautiful area to take a walk before or after your tour. And the tour of the Fort is also fantastic!

For just 5euros you get a very informative tour lasting just over 1hr. Before or after you can enjoy a nice beer or coffee with both outside and inside seating to enjoy the views overlooking Maastricht

I found out about the caves "by accident" while looking for things to do in Maastricht and I was in big doubts whether to go or not. But it turned out to be such a fascinating place! Seriously, if you are not claustrophobic or afraid of dark too much, just go! It is a whole underground city down there, or... More

It was such memorable experience. The price was 12€ for visiting both the fortress and the cave. We had 2 amazing guides Justyna and Paul. They're both funny, dynamic and knowledgeable. I can see how much they love their job! I would recommend this place to all people who want to explore the darkness!!

The caves next to the fort are well worth a visit. A very impressive sight which is not expected at this place. We visited the place yesterday with our dog (which was welcome!!!) and joined the tour led by our guide Myriam. She was very friendly and very knowledgeable about the caves and their history. The tour was in english,... More

The guided tour allows to safely visit a part of the tens of km of man-made caves. Every tour is different, because every guide decides on the spot which tunnels to take, given that, usually, there is more than one group of tourists inside at the same time. One can learn interesting historical facts on these tours, maybe also get... More

A great afternoon hunting eggs in the cave, the guide was perfect in his delivery for small children, educational and most of all fun, in a beautiful surrounds.

Gives a great insight into the history of Maastricht. This is not a real cave, but a 220k excavation of limestone blocks. Our guide, Dominick, did a great job bringing history to life. A little bit of walking, uneven footing, but not so bad, even for seniors. Very close to Maastricht center. Plenty of parking. Highly recommend.

I visited both the caves and the fort at Sint Pieter with my husband. It was a really interesting and enjoyable time. Justina, our guide, bought everything to life and really made the visit memorable. Her English was great. We also had our chocolate Labrador with us. Nearby you can go on a variety of walks across gravel ponds or... More
