storage and security

The inner city of Maastricht is a no-parking zone. If you park your bike outside of the provided bicycle racks, your bike might be taken away by the municipality. Therefore, make sure to leave your bike at a public bicycle rack or one of the free secure bike parking facilities. This also prevents your bike from being stolen. Maastrichtbereikbaar.nl has a clear overview of all the bike parking facilities in Maastricht.

Bike theft is common in Maastricht, so make sure that you buy a good lock. When possible, try to double lock your bike (preferably to the rack itself). Check out this list with 32 of the best chain locks and their prices. In the unfortunate case that your bike got stolen or removed, visit our page to see what you can do to get it back.
