Bookstore Dominicanen has a wide and deep range of books for the general public, music, and books for professionals. But also for the non-book lover, this is a place that you must visit when you are in Maastricht. 

Dominicanen bookshop also serves as a cultural venue, with regular lectures, debates, music performances and even an exhibition space. This is a dream destination for those who love both history and reading, as much as for those non-book lovers who also enjoy a cup of coffee and a treat!
