Places Around Maastricht: Brusselse Poort

Type of Place: Shopping Center/Mall
Location: Postbus 2900, 6201 NA Maastricht Map
Website (Dutch only)

Always busy with locals, the Brusselse Poort is a small oasis for the busy expat already stressed out by other aspects of moving to a new country. The center includes most of your basic shopping needs including two grocery stores, several clothing shops, homegoods, a bike shop, and more. There are also a variety of restaurants and cafes and a Praxis (similar to a smallish Home Depot) nearby for your tool needs.

The Brusselse Poort is open roughly Monday to Wednesday & Friday to Saturday from 8:00 to 20:00, Thursday from 8:00 to 21:00, and is closed on Sunday. Of course the individual stores are free to have different hours. In particular, while the grocery stores are frequently open until 20:00, other shops only stay open until 17:00 or 18:00 (Thursdays are usually later).

For a full list of shops, you can check out the Brusslse Poort’s website above.
