three-country train, the number one connection between people, cities and cultures
The LIMAX tri-country train connection between Aachen, Heerlen, Valkenburg, Maastricht, Visé and Liège is nearing completion. The train is already running between Aachen and Maastricht, and starting in 2024 it should continue on to Visé and Liège. The platforms on the Belgian side of the border have been renovated, and now the line is waiting for rolling stock that can operate using the different safety systems along the route. The completion of the tri-country train will close the triangle between Liège-Maastricht, Maastricht- Heerlen and Heerlen-Aachen, with a quick transfer to trains serving Brussels or Duisburg.
From Maastricht a day out to Liège: the whole family can spend a Sunday enjoying Belgium’s oldest and largest market: La Batte. Easily there and back with the Three-Country Train.
