Enjoy a guided tour of one of the oldest caves in South-Limburg. Be amazed by the tales about the quarry operatives mining the marlstone that built castles and churches. Sympathize with the people hiding there during the wars and discover their secret spots. Admire the beautiful mural paintings and sculptures in the cavern. An impressive journey...
Combine your tour of the Velvet Cave with a visit to the Castle Ruins and go back to the times of knights and damsels. Wander through the great hall, the armoury and the chapel of the only elevated fortress in the Netherlands; since 1050 a landmark of Valkenburg and surroundings. Many battles were fought here but in 1672 it was blown up by the army of Stadtholder Willem III.
The panoramic view of Valkenburg from the castle ruins is unequalled.

Visit the attractive and cosy Christmas market in the Velvet Cave in the period from 16 November to 23 December. This year, Santa Claus has taken up residence in the Velvet Cave. You are invited to visit his home! Take a look at the room of presents, visit his bedroom and admire the reindeers and sleigh. A visit to the Christmas market in the Velvet Cave is more than beautiful decorations alone; on your tour of the cave you can enjoy the impressive mural paintings, sculptures, the unique 18th century chapel , market stalls with Christmas and gift items, ancient trades and a cosy catering establishment.
