When to Book a Flight to Maastricht Airport

Summers, on the other hand, are the busiest time of the year here, since July and August are the months of summer break for most citizens. Don’t let that spoil the fun, though. It is a great time of the year to sit in one of the parks and enjoy the sun. Autumn and spring are always a good time to go, since they are a happy medium between the hot and cold seasons. Just prepare yourself for the weather by bringing layers of clothing when visiting Maastricht and you will be fine!
