Maastricht is an international city - with 120,000 inhabitants - offering many opportunities. The city is located in the Meuse-Rhine Euregion, close to international cities such as Aachen, Düsseldorf, Liège, Brussels and Antwerp. The diversity of European culture is clearly visible in Maastricht. It is for good reason that Maastricht stood at the cradle of the European Union in 1992 at the time of the signing of the Maastricht Treaty - the treaty on European Union.
Today, Maastricht still plays a major international role. Many congresses are held here, and transnational agreements are signed. Large numbers of tourists also come to Maastricht every year for a taste of the epicurean character of the south of the Netherlands.
