Welcome to Zuid-Limburg

Great variety in a small space!

Zuid-Limburg is the southernmost and sunniest region of The Netherlands! Zuid-Limburg borders Germany in the east and Belgium in the south and west. As the centre of this border triangle, which includes Germany, The Netherlands and Belgium, Zuid-Limburg boasts a boundless diversity in a small area.

Different from the rest

To the south, Zuid-Limburg borders the foothills of the Ardennes (Belgium), High Fens (Belgium), and Eifel (Germany). This gives the region its character, which is not typical for the Netherlands at all; Zuid-Limburg’s wide and gently rolling hills are in strong contrast with the otherwise thoroughly flat Dutch landscape!
