Magical Maastricht 2013Festivals / Maastricht
30 November - 30 December, Various times, see website
For an entire month, the historical city of Maastricht transforms itself into a winter wonderland. Vrijthof Square takes centre stage, offering a huge ice-skating rink and a charming Christmas market.
But the festive cheer spreads throughout the city, as all of its picturesque streets and squares are filled with Christmassy delights.
Meanwhile, a giant Ferris wheel promises to keep children (and those young at heart) happy through all the cold winter days.
