The city of Maastricht stands on the Dutch border with Belgium. It has grown up astride the Meuse River and forms part of the thin leg of the Limburg province between Belgium and Germany. This makes Maastricht and its area an important European communications hub. Motorways and railways meet here and Maastricht Aachen Airport is six miles north of the city. Amsterdam is 11 miles to the northwest. If you hire a car in Maastricht it's easy to tour the attractions of this hilly part of southern Holland, which include the Toverland Attractiepark in Sevenum and the Meinweg National Park.
The city is famous for the Maastricht Treaty signed between European nations in 1992 to promote European integration, but it has a lot to offer in its own right. Visitors who hire a car in Maastricht can explore the city's sights like St Pietersberg Caves, an underground tunnel network used as a wartime refuge, and the two historic and atmospheric Roman Catholic basilicas. The stone footbridge of Saint Servatius across the Meuse is good for riverside views and the old Bisschopsmolen watermill is a memorable spot to stop for a snack. The city is great for a wander- head for grand open spaces like Market Square, Vrijthof Square, or the old city gate at Helpoort.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
