With its mysterious underground setting, Valkenburg aan de Geul has been a popular destination with tourists for many a year. Standing atop the romantic castle ruins, one has a magnificent view out over this friendly fortified town. In and around Valkenburg, visitors will find everything they are looking for. In a nutshell: two family amusement parks, a chair-lift and a dry toboggan run, underground marlstone galleries and museums, the only hilltop castle in the Netherlands, a spa, Holland Casino, two cycling adventure attractions both above and underground, intimate restaurants, a lively nightlife, old chateaux, parks and ample countryside. In addition to all of this, Valkenburg aan de Geul has the honour of calling itself the Christmas Town of the Netherlands.
