wonderful place to be in the very center of Maastricht. The book store has been created in an old church. The frescos are still visible. Good selection of books. The café is very popular and serves excellent coffee and try their cheese cake!

This is the most impressive bookstore I've ever seen. It is interesting to experience what you can do with an unused church building without really destroying the original architecture.
