view over Limburg's landscape



Sittard is waiting to be discovered. With its old-town charm, carless center, and magical landscape, it’s a glorious city to cherish and rent. Located in the very south, it matches the Burgundian hospitality and coziness of Maastricht. Think of narrow streets with boutiques and window shopping of delicious pies (or ‘vloai’).

It’s challenging to find student housing in Maastricht. Sittard is a highly popular place to live for those studying there. Thanks to the good train connection, you’re in Maastricht in 14 minutes.

Limburg’s hospitality equals Sittard. Although it’s less international than Maastricht, it has as much charm. Downtown, there are lots of great restaurants and bars – where you can find pretty much every cuisine. On Wednesday and Thursday nights, the market square is peak time for students.
