Profile of Limburg
Limburg is the southernmost province of the Netherlands. It lies between Belgium and Germany. In fact, it has three times as much border with those countries than with its own. So its no wonder that the people of Limburg are international by nature. They view different cultures and languages as an opportunity, not an obstacle. Go out on the streets of Maastricht and you’ll hear a half-dozen languages (at least!) in just a matter of minutes.
The Best of Many Worlds
It’s amazing just how much you can find in Limburg—the open nature of Dutch culture, the joie de vivre of the French and Belgians, and the quality of the Germans. It is here that Romance and Germanic languages and cultures meet and mingle.
Here you will find low, rolling hills, and an ambitious yet relaxed human atmosphere. The beautiful surroundings and cultural variety provide an excellent quality of life for both nature lovers and city dwellers.
The region is home to a surprising number of events, including vibrant traditions like Carnival (Mardi Gras), The European Fine Art Fair (TEFAF), the CHIO Aachen World Equestrian Festival, numerous classical and jazz concerts, performances by the internationally renowned violinist André Rieu, and the famous Pinkpop music festival.
