Please note that the city centre of Maastricht is easily reachable by public transport from several major European airports, including Amsterdam, Eindhoven Airport, Brussels, and Dusseldorf, and that no extra customs are required when crossing the border. Simply fly in, take the train, and be dropped off at the city centre of Maastricht.
