Very nice eighteenth century fort. Its history helps to understand the history of Maastricht. We were lucky enough to have Ernest to lead our guided tour. He brought the visit to a whole new level: he was knowledgeable, funny, full of anecdotes about the fort and Maastricht. Unforgettable experience: I totally recommend it.

Very interesting and exciting adventure.
The guided tour is very well worth the time and money.
The two tour guides were very kind, funny and it showed they know about the history of the fort and the city. They made the tour even more interesting and fun.
At the end of the tour you get a beautiful view of Maastricht, some more interesting facts, and the opportunity to take some amazing photos.
If you begin your city tour here, you will know where to go in Maastricht and what to see afterwards, so it is best to begin here and then explore the city.
The shop has some nice little gifts and the shopkeeper was very kind and helpful as well.
Everyone spoke english perfectly.

We took a guided tour of Fort Sint Pieter for our family of 2 adults and 6 children (8 to 14 years old). Everyone loved it. Tom is a great guide that takes you through a few centuries of military history with very interesting details and plenty of humor. We had a great time!

The Fort Sint Pieter is an iconic landmark offering beautiful views over the city, the lands surrounding the fort and it will provide you with an understanding of the history of Maastricht.

During the fierce battles in the 16th, 17th and 18th century's, Maastricht was sieged, conquered and liberated many times, the city changed hands between various countries and generals.

The fort has been built, upgraded and expanded many times.
The only way to get into the actual fort is through an underground maze of corridors, which made it almost impossible to reach for enemy troops.

The whole history is fascinating, and luckily Maastricht allows you to check it out, and to even play games inside (visit one of the tourist websites for scheduling and prices).

I had a double-tour with my couple 2 weeks ago. We visited the Fort with Wim V. and the north caves with Jack. Both experienced guys and very knowledgeable about Maastricht and the mount itself. Very interesting to have such tours with local guides who know so much about the local history and who are passionate about what they do. I really recommend to take these tours rather than just go to the mount on your own, it makes the joruney more enjoyable. In addition, I belive doing both tours is better because they are quite complementary.

Great experience! We first visited the Fort with Pierre, who was very knowledgeable. It lasts an hour and is worth it, we've learnt a lot.
We then visited the caves (or mines) with Ferdinand (another hour). This was particularly interesting, as those mines are huge, and Gerdinand added a touch of humour, which had the whole group laughing and buzzing as we went.

I highly recommend those visits if you go by Maastricht!

Egbert our tour guide took all our attention, and later answered all the questions.
It was really fun, but also super informative.
We have combined the fort tour with the limestone mine tour (undergrounds), thus it was great to climb up to the sun after an hour of being in the cold and dark :)
I strongly recommend visiting the fort and the neighborhood, as the view is stunning, and there is plenty of place to walk.

Our guide, Willy, was a great source of information on the one hour + tour of the fort and it’s underground tunnels. It was really interesting to learn about the fort and its role in Maastricht’s history over the years. Great views over the city and surroundings.

Did the visit of the fort. Our tour guide, Joe, was very informative and happy to answer any questions. You could tell that he was very interested in military history which made his guide very fun and informative. The view from the top of the fort is great and worth the visit

We visited Fort Sint Peter after a bike ride. A nice restaurant for a coffee and vlaai and lunch later followed by the 12:45 English tour. What a surprising visit. A very nice tour guide that managed to bring the sparsely furnished fortifications to life with great stories of the late 17th and late 18th century. A very interesting place with a lot of history.
