Description

Plumb the depths of Maastricht's North Caves and discover a vast underground labyrinth. In pitch black darkness, with exactly zero bars of phone reception, the hidden history of the Netherlands will be revealed, as well as some World War II secrets.

Feel the cold air gather as you approach the mouth of the North Caves, and notice how all sense of time slips away as you venture into the cavernous dark. A cheery guide will brighten the mood with expert commentary along the way - filling you in on the unique history of the caves.

Rembrandt's Night Watch was stored down here, as well as many other works of Dutch art, all hidden during WWII.

See the beautiful cave paintings that visiting artists have left behind over the years, and get ready to experience nighttime, even when there's daylight outside. This is one serious underground adventure.

Insider tip

The North Caves' entrance is just a 20-minute walk from the city center, but it's another world altogether.

We couldn't ask for a better guide, because Pierre was born in this area and seems to know all the caves'secrets. Would recommend!

Even for the very young grandchildren in the age of 6 years it was a great experience: they were thrilled.
