The Maas is an inspiration, a lover that flows through the heart of Venlo. Just as the Maaspoort is also the beating heart of the city. The Maas is lively, beautiful, energetic and on the move. The gate stands for the explorer. The guide. This one is always open to something new. Something challenging with a hint of rebel. This one leads you to new inspiration, (dis)excitement and enjoyment.
