The climate of Maastricht (the Netherlands)
Maastricht is the cosy capital of the province of Limburg. The city was founded by the Romans and has a rich history which can still be admired throughout the city. It is very pleasant to stroll through the small streets filled with cafes, restaurants and small shops. As soon as the first rays of the sun warm the city Maastricht is filled with terraces. Maastricht is also well worth visiting for shopaholics. Besides the small shops many large shop chains can be found here. If you get tired of shopping and want to be culturally active why not visit the Bonnefanten museum; it is highly recommended. The building itself has unique architectural features. Because of the southerly situation of Maastricht temperatures are higher here on average than in other parts of the country. Maastricht also gets more sunshine and less rain. However, bad weather may cause a lot of inconvenience in other places in Maastricht. A lot of rain in the upstream regions of the river Maas/Meuse may cause serious flooding. In Maastricht the highest temperature of the last 100 years was recorded. Temperatures were 28.8 degrees Celsius in the shade with a peak of 36.3 degrees Celsius. Whoever doesnít like carnival should not visit Maastricht in February. During this month you cannot present yourself without a party hat.
