The Hidden History of Maastricht III: Industrial Heritage
As a student of Maastricht University you’ll be living, studying and socialising in Maastricht for several years. What do you know about the city you will be living in? What kind of city is Maastricht? Where are the hidden places you don’t know about? Learn about Maastricht’s background and history on one of the three tours given by experts of the Limburg Historical and Archaeological Society (Limburgs Geschied- en Oudheidkundig Genootschap, LGOG), who will show you some of the gems of Maastricht.

Tour 3: Industrial Heritage

Maastricht is the oldest industrial town of the Netherlands. On this guided tour you will discover the industrial aspects of the Jekerkwartier, where watermills produced industrial goods from the Middle Ages and where the first steam engine was installed in Maastricht. Afterwards, we will visit the Bassin area, where the Industrial Revolution really took off.
