Koffie Shops in Maastricht|
Considering a visit to Maastricht after Amsterdam. Any suggestions
on coffee shops and chocolate would be helpful. Thank you
The following is from a posting I did a couple of years ago::Lets say there are a few good koffee shops in Masstricht, though none are on par with Amsterdams' better establishments. About a 2.5 hour train ride from A'dam.Interesting factoid: Was told by a Cloggie who runs a head shop in Maastricht, with a gleam in his eye and obvious pride, that Maastricht, Nederland has more koffee shops than any other Neder city, except A'dam. One look at the map and it is easy to understand, nestled between Belgium and Germany.A nice coffee shop and clearly the top choice of the locals for weed... there was a constant line of weed customers, sometimes 8 people deep, each person buying the max limit of 5 grams:Koffee Shop Easy Going, on Hoenderstraat, near the river...... on the West side of the river. Weed from 12 to 16 NLG a gram. Hash sold too.On the East side (train station side of river), Maxcy Coffee shop on Rechtstraat. Decent place, but koffee was not up to typical Dutch koffee standards.Also, of lesser quality, Koffee Shop New Orleans on Brusselse Straat, Koffee Boat Mississippi... a boat coffee shop, downstream of the newer Wilhelminabrug Bridge.... with mixed vibes.There are several other small coffee shops in town, but Easy Going and Maxcy's appeared to be the better ones. And there are probably a few other unexplored coffee shops.None of the shops had the vast weed selection we see in A'dam, but all the well known strains can be found.Maastricht is a very pleasant city, and even a few very low hills nearby.Enjoy your visit.
