During two weekends you will be introduced to the cities of Maastricht and Amsterdam! The city of Leiden might also organise an one-day activity in July. More information about that will be sent by then! Date 18-20 July City Maastricht 8-10 August Amsterdam This booklet intends to give you an overview of the programme for this summer and all the practical information you may need when staying in one of the Dutch cities. There is also information about the other IFMSA-cities which will not be hosting a National Social Programme (NSP) and some information about other fun things to see or to do in the Netherlands. We hope you’ll enjoy your stay with us in The Netherlands. If you have any questions about the National Social Programme 2014, do not hesitate to contact us! Your NSP coordinators, Iolani van Urk and Thanh Mai Bui What to do if you want to join a NSP? Two weekends before the start of a NSP weekend, you will receive an email with an online subscription form, contact information and a deadline for joining. Fill in the form before the deadline and you should be fine! Regularly check the Facebook-group (NSP IFMSA-NL Summer 2014: > click <) to stay up to date. What do I need to bring to a NSP? As you will be staying at dorms of local members of IFMSA, it is important that you bring your own sleeping gear (camping mattress, pump for the mattress and a sleeping bag) unless you have been informed otherwise. Not bringing sleeping gear may not guarantee you having a proper sleeping place. Besides sleeping gear, you will of course need to bring your toiletries and other stuff you use on a daily basis. Certain activities might require you to bring specific items, this will be mentioned at the concerning NSP programme in this booklet. Here is a little list that might help you while packing! 0 Sleeping gear (camping mattress, pump, sleeping bag) 0 Tooth brush 0 Tooth paste 0 Towels 0 Toiletries 0 Pyjama 0 Extra clothing 0 Phone charger 0 Camera, in case you want to take pictures ;) National Emergency Numbers: - Police, fire department, ambulance: 112 National number of the police, no emergency: 0900 8844 Typical Dutch Some useful words/phrases in Dutch Hello Hallo/Hoi How are you?

Erwtensoep: pea soup, another famous Dutch delight. Vlaai: this is a pastry or a sweet pie typical of the southern regions of the Netherlands (Limburg and Brabant) but available all through the country.

It is known as a city of history, culture, local folklore and education, and has the second highest amount (numbering 1677) of national heritage sites. Interestingly, it has become known, by way of the Maastricht Treaty, as the birthplace of the European Union, European citizenship, and the single European currency, the euro. Nowadays Maastricht is known as a place where life is really enjoyed and is great for recreation and shopping. The ultimate holiday feeling comes naturally in Limburg, a unique part of the Netherlands with an exotic atmosphere. Try a cool glass of beer from a local family brewery. Or a cup of coffee and a slice of genuine Limburg pastry, fresh from the oven! The city is therefore popular with tourists. The history of Maastricht can be seen in the historic centre of the city with several churches in Roman and other styles, and in the many squares. The best known is the Vrijthof, which is close to the Servaaskerk, named after the holy Servatius. Servatius is the patron of the traditionally Katholic Maastricht. The tourist information office (VVV) is located in the Dinghuis, a 15th-century former town hall and law courts building on the corner of Grote Staat and Kleine Staat. The main sights include: - - - - City Fortifications, including: o Helpoort: a 13th-century town gate, the oldest in the Netherlands o Fragments of the first and second medieval city walls o Hoge Fronten (or Linie van Du Moulin): remnants of 17th- and 18th-century fortifications with a number of well-preserved bastions and an early 19thcentury fortress, Fort Willem Binnenstad: inner-city shopping district Vrijthof, the best-known square in the city. Sights: o Sint-Servaas Basiliek, the Romanesque church of Saint Servatius. The tomb of Saint Servatius in the crypt is a favoured place of pilgrimage: Pope John Paul II visited here in 1985. Sint-Janskerk, a sandstone Gothic church dedicated to Saint John the Baptist with a distinctive red tower. Onze Lieve Vrouweplein, a picturesque tree-lined square with an abundance of pavement cafes. Markt; the Market Square was completely refurbished in 2006-2007 and is now virtually traffic free. Sights include: o The Town Hall, built in the 17th century by Pieter Post. Mosae Forum, a brand new shopping center and civic building designed by Jo Coenen and Bruno Albert. Bassin, a restored early 19th-century inner harbor with restaurants and cafés. The surroundings are currently being developed into a cultural hotspot. - - Jekerkwartier, a picturesque neighbourhood with the small river Jeker popping up between old houses and remnants of city walls. Wyck: the old quarter on the right bank of the Meuse river. Rechtstraat is the main shopping street in Wyck with a mix of specialty shops, art galleries and restaurants. Céramique, a modern neighbourhood on the site of the former Céramique potteries. Now a showcase of architectural highlights. Parks: there are various parks in Maastricht including: o Stadspark, the main public park on the west bank of the river. o Monseigneur Nolenspark, an extension of Stadspark with remnants of the medieval city walls. o Aldenhofpark, another extension of Stadspark, with a statue of d'Artagnan. o Charles Eykpark, a modern park between the public library and Bonnefanten Museum on the east bank of the Meuse river Griendpark, a modern park on the east bank of the river with an inline-skating and skateboarding course. Sint-Pietersberg: modest hill just south of the city, peaking at 171 metres (561 ft) above sea level.

The Treasury of the Basilica of Our Lady includes religious artifacts. Derlon Museumkelder is a preserved archeological site in the basement of a hotel with Roman and pre-Roman remains. Natural History Museum exhibits collections relating to the geology, paleontology and flora and fauna of Limburg. A highlight in the collection is the skeleton of a Mosasaur. Furthermore, the Maastricht Exposition and Congress Centre (MECC) hosts many events throughout the year.
