Life as an Expat in Maastricht

Located in the far south of the Netherlands, close to the borders with Belgium and Germany, the city of Maastricht is a diverse and energetic Dutch city that brings together a laid-back small town atmosphere with the lively social and cultural blend that a major student city inevitably attracts. With excellent transportation links to major European cities such as Brussels, Cologne, Liege, Aachen, and of course Amsterdam, Maastricht is also a thriving business center, with key industries including chemicals, health and life sciences and the services sector, in addition to a strong tourist industry. For expats looking for an authentic and varied Dutch experience outside the intense hustle and bustle of Amsterdam, Maastricht offers a sophisticated culture, enviable mobility and a warm welcome to all.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 390 cities across the globe. Get to know fellow internationals in your city, before you're moving, or when traveling somewhere and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world.
