Guided tours in the Provincial Government Buildings as part of the Maastricht Treaty anniversary
On 5 February, the doors of the Provincial Government Buildings will be open to the public as part of the 25th anniversary of the signing of the Maastricht Treaty. From 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., interested persons can enjoy a guided tour of the buildings where this historic event took place.
The guided tour will include various locations in the Provincial Government Buildings that played a role in the creation of the Maastricht Treaty. It goes without saying that the tour will take in the Banqueting Hall where the various heads of government held the negotiations on 9 and 10 December 1991, and the Council Chamber where the Treaty was signed on 7 February 1992. Furthermore, exceptional items and documents will be on display.
Visitors will also be informed of interesting facts relating to the conclusion of the Treaty, the basis for the current European Union. The tour will be rounded-off with a visit to the cartoon exhibition ‘Scherts‘, which is also in the Provincial Government Buildings. This is an exhibition of political cartoons drawn in the 25 years between the signing of the Treaty and now. The visit will be concluded with coffee and Limburg tart for all visitors.
The tour will consist of groups of about 20 people. A new tour will start every 15 minutes. Interested persons must register in advance via this registration form.
