This small naturist area is located next to Pietersplas a lake a couple of miles south of Maastricht city centre.
The site is a 1hr 15 drive from either Charleroi or Cologne Bonn airport and only 15 minutes from Maastricht city centre. Access is from Hoge Weerd where signposts will show the Pietersplas marina. Follow the road to the left, turning left into a shaded carpark next to the Kastel de Hoogenweerth. Parking is indicated by a blue "P" on the map below.
Leave the car behind and head towards a gate away from the Kastel building. Go through the gate and follow the path to the right - this takes you between the Maas river and the lake. After a 10 minute walk you will see a path and a gate that takes you direct to the naturist area.
As a day visitor (summer opening hours are 10am - 8pm) you must make yourself known to the people who run the site so head straight towards the lake edge where you will find a wooden boat moored. This is where you pay the entrance fee (currently) €8 per person.
