Utrecht or Maastrict?

Which is the better choice to visit? I'll be doing this as a day trip from Brussels by train.

I'm interested in history, culture, unique architecture and beer.

Rick doesn't mention Maastrict in his guidebook, not because it isn't worth seeing, rather because he prefers other towns, including Utrect, for a first or second-time visit to the Netherlands. He describes Utrect in his guidebook as a, "Bustling university city with the Netherlands' largest medieval old town and its best railway musem." Read more about the Netherlands at For areas Rick doesn't research, the Lonely Planet books are very informative. See what they say about Maastrict at
