The marl town of Valkenburg is located along the fast-flowing river Geul in the heart of the South Limburg National Landscape. The gently sloping landscape is impressively decorated by centuries-old castles and fortresses, golden-yellow colored marlstone cliffs, hawthorn hedges, terraced slopes and hollow roads. Coarse pine and beech forests stand on the flanks of the hills and willow and poplar groves flourish along the banks of the many meandering streams. Nostalgic villages with half-timbered houses are sleeping between green meadows and flowering orchards. It is not surprising that this unique landscape around Valkenburg has been rated five stars!
