Friendly hospitality is part of daily life in South Limburg. People from Limburg are all too happy to take the time to enjoy a drink and a bite to eat. This custom has earned them the reputation as ‘Burgundians’. Such enjoyment always goes hand-in-hand with conviviality and good cheer. In the sunniest part of the Netherlands, people can always count on a warm welcome.
Culinary traditions are deeply rooted in Maastricht, as attested by the no less than four restaurants sporting a total of five Michelin stars in front. But the local residents are also more than happy to indulge their taste buds in a small but cosy wine restaurant or with a tasty snack in one of the many local brown cafés (pubs).
Here, in the south of The Netherlands, people really enjoy life, food and drink more than anywhere else .This is also due to the fact that Limburg, and especially Central Limburg, has a rich history of typical regional products such as the asparagus which is often referred to as “the white gold”. To sound the praises of the asparagus here would be too much as this special vegetable has already been praised numerously. Apart from the famous asparagus Central Limburg boasts many regional products which you will find on the menus of many restaurants in this region.
Flan, asparagus, mushrooms, beer with an historic flavour, blueberries: you name it, the Limburg people have it and know how to enjoy it! Taste all the goodies that Burgundian North Limburg has to offer and go out for dinner at a restaurant or lunchroom.
