Welcome Reception - Sunday 9 September 2018


The origin of La Bonbonnière dates back to the end of the 16th century, when the Jesuits settled in Maastricht.

The construction works started in 1606 with the build of the Jesuit Church under the direction of Petrus Huyssens, commissioned by rector Laurentius Tholen. In 1614 the construction was completed and the inauguration of the church took place. Where the street known as "Behind the Comedy" is now, a monastery was built, which was broken down again in 1787. Only two parts of the monastery have been preserved, Behind the Comedy n ° 8 and n ° 14.

After a few renovations in the 1950s, sixties and seventies, with the realization of the new staircase in 1973, La Bonbonnière has become what it is nowadays. Since December 1996 La Bonbonnière is used as a Grand café and location for corporate events, congresses, and theater performances. for more information about La Bonbonnière, please visit:
