Andre Rieu Maastricht

My elderly parents are great fans of Andre Rieu and my mum is unable to walk far, she wants to visit Andre's home town and his home, does anyone know of any trips that would do this or can anyone suggest a hotel etc that would be close.? They would probably fly to Maastricht as we live very close to Gatwick Airport, if there are no trips, but then I would need to find an easy way for them to travel to Andre's home..

There are no flights to Maastricht from LGW, only from Stansted so you would need to fly to Amsterdam Schiphol and take a train or rent a car from there. Or get to Stansted but then you would have to subject your mother to Ryanair.

I have no idea where his house is, near his castle, Huis de Torentjes apparently.

Thank you, do you know if it is a long journey from Amsterdam to his castle? Sorry I have no idea of where things are or the area.

His adress: Ursulinenweg 1-a, 6212 NC Maastricht

Watch it on Google maps:

The best, and i realy think the only way to go there is by taxi, i'me afraid. Would you say it's worth the trip?

Anyway, there's a B&B(Saint Pierre) 1km away:

It's in a nice neighbourhood, but i realy don't know anything about it.

Maastricht is a very nice town, but some walking is required.

Gr,

From Schiphol the train journey is 2h30 and €24 one way. With three of you it might also be worth looking into flying Easyjet LGW to Dusseldorf and then renting a car. The drive is only just over an hour.
