The city center of Maastricht prioritizes cyclists and pedestrians and therefore there are only few parking spots on the streets.  You will have to buy a parking ticket anywhere in the city center from 08.00 to 18.00 (on Thursdays the time slot is extended until 21.00).The general rule of thumb is that the closer to the city centre you park, the more you can expect to pay.  However, Maastricht has several (cheaper) Park + Walk and Park + Ride locations close to the city center. Visit for a handy overview  of the best places to park. The site also contains a lot of information about different zones and parking spots in town.
