Places Around Maastricht: Selexyz Dominican Bookstore

Type of Place: Bookstore

Location: Dominikanerkerkstraat 1; 6211 CZ Maastricht


The Selexyz Dominican bookstore is located in a beautiful refurbished cathedral and features a nice Coffeelovers cafe and a moderately large collection of books for sale. The English collection is small, so you may have to dig if that’s what you’re looking for. Watch the video to learn more.

As promised in the video here are a couple pictures of the bookstore’s interior:

    What’s wrong with their smoothies?

    Imagine a container of runny strawberry yogurt, sitting on your counter on a warm day. All day. And then imagine pouring that into a glass and charging €4 for the privilege of drinking it.

    I got my money back for that one, but man, never ever again…

    Complete and gory details are on my blog…

    Wow! That is one impressive bookstore. I was expecting something like the normal one in Amsterdam when I first started reading but that one looks like it’s worth checking out even if you are not looking for a book.
