The Geul is a river in Belgium and in the Netherlands, where it is a right-bank tributary to the river Meuse.
The source of the Geul is at about 300 metres above sea level in northeastern Belgium near the German border, south of the German town of Aachen. From there, after flowing some 20 kilometres in a northwestern direction, it leaves Belgium and enters the Netherlands at Cotessen in the Vaals municipality. After a further 38 kilometres in a west-northwestern direction through the most southern part of Limburg, which in its turn is the most southern province of the Netherlands, it flows into the Meuse, north of the city of Maastricht.
