Limburg is the southern most province of the Netherlands. It is a bit different from the rest. It is the only province to have (what we call) mountains. The highest point is in Vaals. The point where three countries meet at 322 meters. The two other countries being Germany and Belgium. As Limburg is also the most southern province it is almost always a few degrees warmer. The people from Limburg are known for their hospitality and enjoying life.


Valkenburg is the tourist city in the south of Limburg. It is always busy, and on sunny weekends it is maybe a little bit to much.
In Valkenburg there is something for young and old.
There are children themeparks, there is history in the castleruines, or visit the caves. And when you love nature it is the place to be. Great hikes can be done around Valkenburg.
At the end of the year Valkenburg is also known as Xmas city.
See our Valkenburg page for lots more.
Valkenburg is also famous as a cycling mecca, a serious cyclist should climb the Cauberg once in his life.


Maastricht, capital of Limburg, is a nice city to visit. There are many remains of ancient times. Maastricht is also a great city to go shopping. And on a sunday when the shops are closed it is still attractive to walk through the centre of the city. Go to the church and burn a candle, or if you are not into that have a drink in one of the many pubs here.
