Let Maastricht amaze you (again)
10.30 - 12.30 | 12.30 - 14.30 | 14.00 - 16.00 – Maastricht City Guided Walking Tour
Maastricht is an ancient town – you must have noticed during the years you spent here – which means there are countless stories to tell about the people who lived here and the buildings they left us. We will have a look at several of Maastricht University’s buildings and tell you about their history and their prior occupants. These stories fit into the larger picture of Maastricht, past and present, presenting itself to us along the way.
The session starts with coffee and cake.
16.30 - 19.30 – Maastricht City Guided Walking Tour + University Library Tour (Special Collections)
Please join us as well for UM’s Special Collections Tour. This magical evening takes place in the library’s closed stacks where curator Odin Essers will display rare books and tells you how the library increases the visibility, usability and sustainability of its Special Collections by raising the familiarity with these collections within the overall UM community and among interested parties from outside of the university, as well as to stimulate their use in teaching, research and public contexts. A fascinating look behind the scenes!
The session starts with bites and drinks.
