Maastricht: churches 2.0

I love to visit churches. I’m not religious, but I do love the buildings. As people are going less to church thesedays, a lot of these amazing buildings are left empty. But in Maastricht, we found some amazing examples of what you can do with it.

There was the bookshop Dominicanen in the Dominican Church, the nicest bookshop I have ever been to. We browsed books, magazines, had coffee … An ideal way to spend some hours.

We had dinner at Kruisherenrestaurant, another really nice example of a church turned into something else. This is a hotel, bar and an upscale restaurant. We had the suprise dinner of the chef, which was delicious. A pea bavarois and a sweet potato soup with sea bass and scallop were the starters. The main course was deer. The dessert was amazing: yoghurt panna cotta with blood orange icecream, white chocolate mousse and a hint of whiskey and something else I can’t remember.
