The Maastricht Solar Train is a perfectly green way to explore a stunning city

A city tour can be a useful device with which to acquaint oneself with the often many and varied quarters a new playground of adventure has to offer.

There is, indeed, not much more disheartening to the intrepid traveller than gaining fleeting glimpses of treasures undiscovered from the dusty window of an airport or railway station bound taxi cab.

Finding both value and requisite quirkiness fused pleasurably in one offering can be a little irksome, and require much tramping and traipsing of dusty streets and squares, and consorting with guidebooks. Let us save you that trouble in Maastricht – simply seek out the innovative Solar Train, whose soft amble and green conscience make it the perfect conveyance for acquainting yourself with the main cultural staples of this splendid Dutch city.

Claimed to be a world first, this cheeky little road train trundles and winds along main streets, squares and cobbled alleys with ease, imparting historical knowledge through its tiny speakers at almost every bend in the road.

A different, fun and inexpensive environmentally friendly way to do your sightseeing, the Maastricht Solar Train will surely catch on in other cities soon. Hop on at Kesselskade and enjoy the ride!
