The Maastricht Caves

No reviews, be the first!

I have to admit that due to my well-developed claustrophobia visiting caves is not high on my list of things to do. Especially not caves as intricate and deep as the Maastricht Caves. Located under Saint Pieterberg Hill and stretching under the city, there are over 20,000 passageways creating this labyrinth of tunnelling dug by centuries of miners of marl, a lime stone for building houses.
