Maastricht is preparing to celebrate the 55th Procession of Holy Relics, which is held every seven years. There will be various activities, pilgrimages, cerebrations, and processions.

On Friday 25 May, Saturday 26 May, Friday 1 June, and Saturday 2 June, the shops will be open from 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM.
