Expat Centre Maastricht Region organises, together with expert partners and service providers in the region, specialised one-off and regular events that educate, inform and entertain our international residents. Strategically planned informal meet-ups and cultural happenings such as Let’s Catch Up give expats a chance to relax into the “bourgondische” atmosphere of the Maastricht Region and feel at home more quickly.
Aachen Christmas Market
For about four weeks before Christmas, the squares and lanes around Aachen Cathedral and the town hall are transformed into a Christmas village and a meeting place for Aacheners and visitors to the city.
