Maastricht was built as a Roman military camp; some of the remains of the Roman times can be discovered here, you can also enjoy a nice live Jazz if you com in the evening. Do not miss! this is very unique ;)

The Roman ruins in the basement of this hotel-restaurant are freely accessible. There are descriptions of Roman times and subsequent eras. Although parts of the site are numbered I noticed only a few descriptions matching the numbers. There are also some nice objects from Roman times, such as some acorn-shaped items, and a roof tile with a dog's footprint in it.

It looks just like any other hotel and bar but inside there are Roman ruins well worth seeing. You don't have to buy anything but its worth just having a quick drink or snack while you so I am up the ruins

We heard about Roman ruins in Maastricht and began researching the history of the city. It's recommended you do the same before visiting. The Romans chose to build a road through Maastricht to Cologne and a fortress and temple along the West side of the river. The Derlon cellar includes sections of the road, an old well, artifacts found from the site, including parts of a statue. The site extends under more buildings in the neighborhood, this is the only spot we know if that you can see some of the original and reconstructions. The Derlon owner decided to preserve this site. You can visit for free on Sundays, 1200-1600. Other times you can make a reservation to eat with history.

These Roman ruins are to be found in the basement of the Derlon hotel. We called in to the hotel bar for a drink on a rainy day to let the shower pass. It was a very stylish bar and as an added bonus, when we went downstairs to the toilets, we discovered these delightful Roman ruins. Well worth a visit for excellent beer and an added bonus on the way to the loo.

It's just a cool site to behold, Roman Ruins that were inadvertently excavated when the hotel owners were adding on the breakfast dining room. And it's free. When you enter the hotel, just tell the staff you would like to go see the ruins. They will give you a nod to the stairs.

Although we didn't have breakfast in the cellar nor stayed in the hotel, the friendly staff allowed us a quick peek in their cellar. Which is absolutely worth a visit!

It only takes a few minutes to surprise someone,...
And this is how to do it.
Old Rome at your feet. This truly shows you vividly why Maastricht is the oldest city of the Netherlands.

My boyfriend loved this because he's a Roman history buff; I enjoyed it as well but definitely wasn't as excited about it as he was. Cool to take a look at, doesn't take long and is interesting. Free entrance so if you have the time pop in and take a look!
