The three Maastricht webcams.Hotel DuCasque replaced the aging webcam in July 2014, facing the Vrijthof square in Maastricht. Since November 2018 “Webcam-Maastricht“ added another webcam overlooking the river Meuse, from café-restaurant “The Piepenhoes”. We can see their own outside terrace along the river, and the ancient Servaes Bridge.Since January 2022 “Webcam-Maastricht” added another webcam to the Vrijthof Square, from the side.Please click HERE to see the images of these three high quality webcams.
Important message for the fans about FAKE RIEUS.Currently a few fake Rieus are misleading the fans on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest.Be sure that the real André Rieu never writes messages to fans on Facebook, via PM or otherwise. He’ll never ask for money or whatever. He has no adopted son, he does not announce concerts or Meet and Greets on Facebook. The right information can be found on his official website: www.andrerieu.com.So please report and block these fake persons. Instructions (from André’s Facebook page) how to do that, click HERE.
