We will be traveling from Amsterdam in September to visit the grave of a friend's uncle in Margraten. Can you tell us the best mode of transportation to take? We will not have a car. We thought we would come through Maastricht, as we have heard it is a beautiful city. Many thanks for any help you can give us! Sincerely, Marty Boney

Regular train service from Amsterdam to Maastricht - takes about 2.30 hrs From Maastricht there is a bus service to Margaten every 15 min. You ought to book stay in Maastricht it is well worth visit.
