how to get from cologne/bonn airport to maastricht

My son is working and living in Maastricht and has asked myself and my husband to spend Christmas with him, I have flights chosen but I am wondering if it is possible to get train or bus to maastricht at night as we don't land until about 21.30.

My son said he will pick us up but I would like a second option incase he is held up for any reason!

We are hoping to land there on either 23th or 24th Dec,

My other question would be, is there trains and buses on the 1st January?

Hi there,

Well as for Jan 1st: don't worry. It will be a bit limited schedule, just as on other public holidays, but in Europe trains/buses DO go.

Only checked the trains, which are more to be expected as it's quite a long distance than buses.



You'll also find an English section. The route would be

a) Airport to Aachen

b) From Aachen there are direct buses to Maastricht, don't run _that_ late in the night. Also trains to Heerlen Netherlands where you'd have to switch for another train to Maastricht.

There even is a train direct from airport to Aachen at 00:34 AM, which arrives Aachen close to 2 AM. That could be a fallback option, and then taxi to Maastricht from there (at least USD 100)?
