The Maastricht connoisseur Martijn Kicken invited us for a day to visit Maastricht and around and to bring us to the former border crossing Withuis (near Eijsden) where Kaiser Wilhelm II on November 10, 1918 travelled from Belgium to the Netherlands to live his life in exile in “Huis Doorn”.

Where is Withuis?
