No EAA Annual Meeting would be complete without offering delegates the opportunity to visit key archaeological and historic sites across The Euroregion Meuse-Rhine. We have organised a range of excursions covering all periods of specialism and interest. These include trips to prehistoric landscapes, castles, churches, museums, World Heritage Sites of mining industries as well as historic buildings, WW II cemeteries and battlefields and historic towns.
All tours will be conducted by leading experts and range from day walking tours of sites in Maastricht, coach trips to different parts of the Euroregion Meuse-Rhine and bike tours around the city of Maastricht.
Places are restricted for each excursion and we would strongly encourage you to book at the earliest opportunity to secure your place. Under-subscribed tours may be subject to cancellation.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: You are strongly encouraged to purchase travel insurance before you travel. Please also remember that the Dutch weather can be notoriously changeable and it would be advisable to bring footwear and outdoor clothing to accommodate inclement weather.
The excursions can be booked at registering for the conference. If you have already registered and wish to book an excursion please contact the Conference Secretariat.
All excursions are organised by LGOG, the Historical and Archaeological Society of Limburg
