Maastricht is the ultimate fashion city. Famous fashion brands have beautiful shops here, and countless unusual boutiques and speciality shops present unique fashion and design items and accessories. The historic city centre provides a fantastic backdrop to the ultimate shopping experience. This makes the city a Mecca for fashion enthusiasts and shopaholics.

Next to this there are new, edgy shopping initiatives such as pop-up markets at Brandweer (click HERE for the latest updates on Facebook) or at  Gebouw M at Tapijn (click HERE) that you have to check out. Amongst other things they provide vintage clothes and sustainable food-markets.

A question we often hear is: when does the next sale start? It’s a question we can’t really answer as there are no strict rules on sale dates in the Netherlands. Generally speaking, however, sales start at the beginning of each new season, i.e. when the previous collection needs to make way for the new one. Want to be sure? Best thing to do is call the shop or ask an employee next time you go shopping.

Maastricht is easy to get around on foot or by bike, so ideal if you want to go on a shopping spree!shopping picture Jules

There are several ‘districts’ in Maastricht and they each have their own identity: Wyck is young and hip, the Jeker Quarter (where the Jules Maastricht office is located) is a mix of arty stores, cafés and restaurants. This is where the locals stroll the streets at their leisure, students read in the park, and you can spend a whole Sunday on a café terrace, a wisp of jazz music in the air in the background, and never get bored.
