About the Event
Petrus Regout, the emperor of industrial Maastricht in the 19th century, will be your guide around his empire on October 12th 2019 - will you join him and come across to Sphinx to discover all the stories to be found there?
He has been a very important citizen of Maastricht, even though the local elite looked down on him. From a shopkeeper he became the first real industrialist of The Netherlands; his ceramics were exported around the world and Sphinx became a household name. Now his factories are gone, but the Sphinx-kwartier is alive again and open for discovery!
This event is a collaboration between Kaleido, The Student Hotel, Meet Maastricht, Kumulus, Lumière Cinema and the Expat Centre Maastricht Region.
