A plan of the city of Maastricht in the Netherlands, published in Braun & Hogenberg's 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum', the first series of printed town plans. The title 'Traiectum ad Mosam' means 'crossing over the Meuse', giving Maastricht its Dutch name.

In 1579, two years before publication, the city was sacked and looted by the Spanish under General Alexander Farnese, Duke of Parma, and was held until 1632.
