About Sint-Martens-Voeren


Silex (flint) was extracted and used in housing construction. There was and is hardly any industry, so many people left. The village gained in importance with the construction of the Sint-Martens-Voeren railroad station. People found work in Maastricht, Visé and Liège and from the end of the 20th century Sint-Martens-Voeren became a popular place to live among the Dutch.
