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.
Let's Catch Up with Taiat Dansa and Man Ray
19:00 - 22:30 at Theater aan het Vrijthof
Taiat Dansa’s Man Ray focuses on the photographer’s fetishistic relationship with his muses, and, therefore, on all relationships between male artists and their female models. In cooperation with the Interreg V-A project youRegion.
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.
Magical Maastricht on the Vrijthof
10:00 - 00:00 at the Vrijthof
The skating rink will be covered with a transparent roof, the Christmas market will be expanded with a market for regional products and a crafts market. The big wheel is 50 metres high, and there will also be a traditional 'Almhütte'. The main attraction is the Home of Santa Claus which is an annex of his Santa Claus Village in Rovaniemi, Finland. Here, Santa and his elves will welcome children and parents to his magical winter wonderland.
