Maastricht & Monschau

Maastricht is another city in the Netherlands, about a 40 minute bus ride east of Aachen. My friends and I went there on Tuesday after our lessons. It rained, but we were still able to explore the city.

Monschau is also a 40 minute bus ride away from Aachen, but it is to the south on the border of Germany and Belgium. This trip was organized by the Spraachen Akademie so we went on a tour and rode the bus for free. The town sits in the middle of a valley and was very small and picturesque. Monschau used to be a cloth making town, but now its only industry is tourism. It also rained here so after the tour, we sat in a quaint cafe and bought hot chocolate and cheese cake.
