Fort St Pieter

Fort St Pieter has it all: cannons and embrasures, a spectacular view of Maastricht, and an underground system of tunnels. Go on a journey through time and hear the tales told by an Official Maastricht Guide of a time in which the city was under siege and had to be defended tooth and nail.

At the outskirts of the city, outlined against the sky on top of the hill, towers the impressive Fort St Pieter built on the St Pietersberg hill in the early 1700s. Here you are standing in the Heuvelland hills, even though you can see all of the city stretched in front of you. You can combine a visit to the fort with a visit to other places of interest or a lovely walk through the beautiful natural landscape of Limburg.
