Maastricht and South Limburg Travel guide.
In 1976 Pierre Kartner wrote the famous song "The Red Rose Café", also known as "The little Café on the Harbor". This song became popular all over the world and numerous artists recorded it. In 2002, André and the JSO also recorded "The Red Rose Café" and presented the first copy of the CD to Pierre Kartner. The original Red Rose Café is in the town of Hoorn, named 't Schippershuis! There they have 178 different versions of the song available. In 2008 we did organize a trip to Hoorn and the café. This year we noticed a renewed interest in visiting Hoorn and the café.
