About the event

Our next welcome event for all newcomers from the Euregio Meuse-Rhine takes place on Thursday 30 September! All newcomers from LIMBURG (Belgium), ZUID-LIMBURG (the Netherlands) and REGION AACHEN (Germany) are welcome to join! 

 The start of the program will be at the Muziekgieterij from where we will continue to the Sphinx building. There, one of Maastricht’s very own city guides will show us around the vibrant Sphinxkwartier. This is a recently redeveloped area where Maastricht's industrial heritage has been given a new, contemporary and distinctive interpretation – where the ingrained traces of the Sphinxkwartier’s rich history have been brought to the surface once more. Afterwards, we will return to the Muziekgieterij where our guests from Aachen and Belgian Limburg are welcomed by the mayor of Maastricht. During an interactive Cultural Awareness lecture (hosted by Maastricht University) we have an opportunity to get to know each other. The evening will be closed with drinks & fingerfood.
