Favorite thing: Southern Limburg has a long whine tradition that goes back to trhe romans. These days there are many amateurs who build their own wine yards, and we can discern some 5 preofessional wineproducers. The Apostelhoeve is the biggest wineyard of the Netherlands. It produces around 35.000 bottles a year (white wine). Thiessen, located in the heart of town, produces red wine at his small vineyard. The caves cadier in Cadier en Keer has a small winemuseum with an interesting collection of wines. in the caves cadier you can also taste wine. Chateau Neercanne also possesses a small vineyard specialized in red wine. Finally, monastery of Savante produces wine since the 3 th century and nowadays sells Riesling. You can book wine-excursions at the VVV (0900-9798)

Fondest memory: tasting wine at the Apostelhoeve.
