Maastricht has everything when it comes to shopping. This beautiful town has luxury stores, fashion boutiques, haute couture, big brands and lively shopping streets.

The city has a large growing international student population. Nightlife in Maastricht is fantastic for students, with many clubs hosting famous djs. The three main squares of Maastricht, the Markt, Vrojthof, and O.L Vrouwe, each offer a different type of nightlife experience.
