From bike shed to bookchurch

Thousands of books in a heavenly ambiance

In 2006 the old Dominican church in Maastricht got a new destiny. A bookshop was established inside the church.

Untill 2013 the bookshop was part of the bookshop chains Selexyz and Polare. After the bankcruptcy in 2014 the bookshop restarted as Bookshop Dominicanen and is now an independant bookshop.

Our bookshop receives approximately 700.000 visitors a year. Our collection contains new and second-hand books, including books in English, French, Spanish, German and Italian. On the first floor you find our music department with CD’s, DVD’s, and Vinyl (LP’s).

Besides selling books, music and non-books, we also organise over 150 events a year (exhibitions, debates, interviews, readings, music, workshops etc.).
