After spending four days in Paris, my entry point to Europe, I finally arrived in Maastricht (see Three Countries in Three Hours: Train from Paris to Maastricht).

The city, considered by many as the heart of Europe due to its geographic location and having given birth to the European Union, will be my home for a year or so.
If you are coming from Paris like me, one of the most convenient and straightforward ways to get to Maastricht is to take the Thalys, a highspeed train that connects France, Belgium, Netherlands and Germany.
You can book a train online that departs from Paris Nord, France and goes to Liege, Belgium. From Liege, you will transfer to another train that will take you to Maastricht, Netherlands.
