Valkenburg is not a traditional Dutch town ...by that I mean theres not a lot of canals ,and windmills ...its hilly...dominated by its castled ridge,almost like a Rhine town ...But the Geul River has been managed as it comes through the town ,and seems like a canal with some nice homes ,and pretty squares along its banks ...
Valkenburg is situated on the river Geul. Just a smal stream that runs through the town and southern Limburg. A nice thing to do is to make a walk alongside the river to the nearby town of Schin op Geul.
Details ... don't forget the wonderful details
Valkenburg, and Limburg as well, is a very special province and you will find out about that when you watch the details. For example the little chaples down the landscapes little backroads and in the villages and towns the sometimes tiny little statues of "our dear lady Mary" inside the walls, are the living proove of a still quite religious population and that's the truth. Roman Catholism, doesn't live anywehere stronger within the people then in Limburg. Something that is to be discovered in these details as well as in the hearts of most Limburgians.
spanish with colors
Restaurant Gaudi specialises in spanish dishes. At the weekends there is a spanish buffet to choose from. And you can always choose to have tapas (small spanish dishes). Six tapas of your choose for a menu.
The design of the restaurant is inspired by Gaudi. Many flamboyant colored mosaics.
Let yourself be spoiled in welness
Valkenburg already had it's sources for centuries, but actually only in the last, one started with more commercial exploitation of the name "Valkenburg". Especially with the huge complex "Thermae 2000" this "kurort" or "spa" awareness has grown and yearly many thousands come to relax themselves in the waters of these bathinghouses. Like it is almost supposed to be, Valkenburg already had it's casino and evening entertainment. So if you want to have yourself spoiled, book one of the many welness-programms and enjoy Valkenburg.
