Open Heritage Days held on 8 and 9 september

For Sunday September 9th, the Art and Heritage Commission of Maastricht University (UM) has put together a special tour!

 Maastricht University will participate in this year’s Open Heritage Days (Open Monumentendagen), held on 8 and 9 September. During this weekend thousands of landmark buildings and historical places throughout the country will be accessible to the public for free. This year’s theme centres on the notion that we should always consider our built world in relation to its green surroundings. After all, most natural settings in the Netherlands are man-made, developed in close interaction with the built environment. Using the catchphrase ‘Groen van Toen’ (green spaces from times past), the Open Monumentendag Foundation zooms in on this particular relationship. For more information, please check the Open Monumentendag flyer or look at
For Sunday September 9th, the Art and Heritage Commission of Maastricht University (UM) has put together a special tour, which comprises the following elements:
 - a walking tour led by a student guide who shows you around several outdoor UM locations in the inner city of Maastricht: the former Jesuit garden at Tongersestraat 53, the inner courtyard of the former Provincial government building at Bouillonstraat 1-3, and the Hof van Tilly at Grote Gracht 92.
- next, your guide will accompany you on the walk to the Bassin, from where two longboats provided by Sailcenter Limburg take you to a historical ‘green space’ on the Maas River: the Limburg provincial government building (in the morning) or the Borgharen dam (in the afternoon).
- finally, the longboats take you back to the Bassin, where our tour ends.
 The full tour will take two and a half hours and is free of charge.
 Participants need to sign up in advance via this link on the website of the Art and Heritage Commission. The number of spaces available is limited. The tour is offered in both Dutch and English.
On 8 and 9 September it is also possible to visit the abovementioned locations on your own.
In collaboration with
City of Maastricht
