About this spot
Huys op den Jeker is a historic building located in the city of Maastricht in the southern part of the Netherlands. The building is situated on the banks of the Jeker river and is one of the oldest structures in the city, dating back to the 14th century.

The building was originally constructed as a fortified manor house, and was later used as a convent, a military hospital, and a barracks. Today, it serves as a cultural center and event space.

One of the most notable features of Huys op den Jeker is its distinctive architecture, which reflects the building's long and varied history. The exterior of the building features elements of both medieval and Renaissance architecture, including a fortified tower and a decorative façade.

Inside, the building has been carefully restored and renovated to accommodate modern events and activities, while still preserving many of its original features. The main hall, which was once a chapel, is now used for concerts, exhibitions, and other cultural events.

Huys op den Jeker is a popular destination for visitors to Maastricht who are interested in history and architecture. It is also a popular venue for weddings, conferences, and other special events, thanks to its unique atmosphere and picturesque location along the Jeker river.
