Hidden between the moss-green hills, in the heart of the ‘Heuvelland’ nature reserve, sparkles the marlstone town of Valkenburg. With its beautiful surroundings, caves and ruined castle it has been a landmark for over 130 years. In winter, Valkenburg turns into the Christmas town of The Netherlands.

Discover all the regions of Zuid-Limburg

Different from the rest of The Netherlands to the south, Zuid-Limburg borders on 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!
