This year, Thiessen Wijnkoopers and FASHIONCLASH Festival will be collaborating for the 3rd time as they share a great love of community, craftsmanship, tradition and enriching taste-experiences. Thiessen Wijnkoopers will be serving carefully chosen wines to visitors of the festival.

ABOUT: Thiessen Wijnkoopers

It has already been 300 years since the foundation was laid down for Thiessen Wijnkoopers as we know it today. The authentic wine cellars under the impressive historical city home are still open to the public and in use for storing their wine.

Besides having a century old wine cellar, Thiessen Wijnkoopers also is one of the most magical places to host an event. The historic rooms and beautiful city garden will make every night one to remember.

You don’t have an event coming up, but still want to enjoy the spectacular selection of wines? No worries, in the wine shop you can find the most fitting wine for any occasion. The highly educated staff will help you find the wine that suits you best.

All this history makes us proud to present Thiessen Wijnkoopers as one of our sponsors.


Wine is definitely a part of our religion. We believe in the power of wine as tastemaker and mood booster. But we all have some beans (or grapes) to spill when it comes to wine. Tell us why wine is your religion and share your holy moments that can’t do without it with #WineMyReligion.

HOME OF THE BEST WINES COMBINED WITH A TOUCH OF HISTORYProud sponsor of FASHIONCLASH Festival since 2016 FASHIONCLASH is honoured to team up for the second time with Thiessen Wijnkoopers during FASHIONCLASH Festival 2017. Just like fine wine, this friendship gets better with age as we’re not only treating our festival guests to the beautiful and rich flavours of Thiessen Wijnkoopers. This year we will also present an outstanding exhibition of the new generation of fashion talent from the Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts & Design (MAFAD) throughout their beautiful centuries-old house in the heart of Maastricht.

LET’S CELEBRATE: 300 YEARS OF WINE EXPERIENCES At Thiessen Wijnkoopers they know their wines as we know fashion; splendid classics rub shoulders with exciting newcomers. Since 1717 they have led the way in importing quality wines from France and the rest of the world for almost 300 years. Their centuries-old property in the heart of the city is an impressive part of Maastricht’s cultural heritage. Thiessen is the place par excellence for an impressive collection of the best wines, ports and champagnes. Just a five minute walk from the Vrijthof, their beautiful historic premises are also a unique location for tastings, dinners and other gatherings. They even have their own (city) vineyard. Feel free to step inside to discover this hidden treasure and explore the magnificent wine cellars and historical premises based at Grote Gracht 18, and end with a taste of their fantastic wines. You can also experience their passion for wine at FASHIONCLASH Festival, as our glasses will be enriched with their love for wine. 

MAFAD FACES TOMORROW @THIESSEN Thiessen Wijnkoopers is not only the place to be for the best wines! During FASHIONCLASH Festival Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts and Design (MAFAD) is going to present an exciting cross section of its new curriculum program in Design, based on the areas Body, Object and Material. MAFAD is seeking for a new generation of idealistic and socially engaged students viewing society and the existing systems with a critical eye. Inspired by leading innovators, a symbiotic and sustainable image has emerged in which life is consciously expressed regarding a new identity. The areas of Body, Object and Material become more personally oriented towards society, the community.

The "secret" cellars of Thiessen Wijnkoopers are open to the public to experience a broad range of fashion, products, objects, material experiences, jewellery and much more. The talented students are going to guide you through this Wine & Design labyrinth. The ultimate trip down sensory lane! Photo: Nienke Creemers
