Language no problem!



Thank you for visiting the ‘language no problem’ section of our website.


Theater aan het Vrijthof opened in 1992 and continuously strives to play an important role in Maastricht and in the (Eu)region. Located in the heart of the city, at the well-known Vrijthof square, Theater aan het Vrijthof is the cultural hub for performances, concerts, and other activities that stimulate cultural debate.


Our programs are not limited to our main stage. We also expand our shows to external stages such as AINSI, historical churches, and other locations within the Maastricht area.


Theater aan het Vrijthof aims to present performances that merit deeper reflection. The confrontation, turmoil, and resistance innate to these creative initiatives provoke wonder and awareness. However, the theatre is also the place to escape your daily business routine to find laughter, to be moved, and to ‘get stirred up’. Add a touch of cultural excitement by stepping into the magical reality of a theatre performance by coming to Theater aan het Vrijthof.
