Really interesting to learn about the history of these man-made caves under a hill. Lots of memorable drawings on the walls, and the ww2 art vaults were a highlight. Be sure to keep up with the guides, as it's pitch black down there without a torch!

I know the caves not only as a tourist attraction, but also as a place to gather with friends. You can organise parties and other kinds of get-togethers in the St. Pietersberg caves. During the Second World War they were used as hiding places and a place of storage. The Mosasaurus, Maastricht's very own ichthyosaur (sea-dwelling dinosaur) was found here,... More

Amazing place! I was really surprised how nice and interesting can be a caves system. Be careful with low temperature

我的英文程度並不是特別好,行前導遊Edwin特別確認了大家的英文程度。並且用簡單易懂的英文單字向我們解說,說的徐緩清楚,讓大家有發問的空間,也很熱心地回答我們的提問。還體驗了全黑環境的感覺,令人印象深刻。非常開心能遇到Edwin L! My English is not very well. Thanks Edwin use simple words to explain, let me can realize what he says. And the no-light experience is interesting, Thank you Edwin L!

The caves look inviting and there seems to be lots of them based on what we could discern from the viewing platform. I wish we'd had time to walk down to explore them, but didn't.

This is a must do activity, Unless one is claustrophobic. Could enjoy it more because of our guide ; he knew how to entertain and keep us in good humour

Very impressive. We did the combined tour of the fort and caves. Ed on the Cave tour and Dory on the fort tour were both great guides. Well worth the $10.20 fee.

We combined this with a tour of the fort, and the kazematten. Our Dutch guide (I believe his name was Jean?) was amazing. Because we were a quick group he was able to take us to 'de kluis', the former keeping-place of all the Dutch national art treasures during the second world war. He showed us where they used to...

I've done the caves tour 3 times and each one has been different, and amazing. Definitely a must do if you're in Maastricht. The St. Pietersberg plateau is also a beautiful area to take a walk before or after your tour. And the tour of the Fort is also fantastic!
