Christmas here, which means Magisch Maastricht (Magic Maastricht) is back!
This is a takeover of Vrijthof Square in the town centre. Going on for the entire month of December, it includes a skating rink, a christmas market where you can buy santa-paraphernalia, a 50m ferris wheel and even a Rudolph ride!
I went yesterday, and it was really fun to wander around drinking gluhwein and eating Reibekuchen (German hashbrowns with apple sauce) and nutella churros. We also had a go on the wheel, and it was great to see the whole city light up.
I’m sure I’ll be back soon for ice skating and more food!
