The red tower of the Sint Janskerk is a striking landmark on the Vrijthof. Climb it for a fantastic view of the city and the whole surrounding area.
On Maastricht’s most famous square, Vrijthof, it’s impossible to miss: the Sint Janskerk. Its red tower makes this church a striking landmark. It dates from the 13th century and was built as a parish church for the clergy of the Sint Servaasbasiliek, so as to unburden that church as a pilgrimage place. When Maastricht was conquered from the Spaniards in the 17th century, it became a protestant church. The tower dates from the 15th century and is nearly 80-metres high. You can climb about halfway up.
