Luikerweg 71, Maastricht

 

Fort St. Pieter is perched high above the Meuse river on the south side of the city, and is directly connected with the caves in St. Pietersberg hill via underground tunnels. You are sure to enjoy both the view from the fort and the stories told by your guide, mixing history with anecdotes and humour.

 

The fort dates from around 1700 and is largely still intact, with parts recently restored. The fort is made up of several levels and is equipped with various large and small cannons and mortars. After the Fort St. Pieter tour you can go explore the caves below the St. Pietersberg hill. Through a labyrinth that once comprised more than 20,000 corridors, a professional guide takes you underground to see the names and drawings of people who worked here every day a few hundred years ago.
