    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Just outside the centre of Heerlen there is a museum on Roman history, called Thermenmuseum. It houses all kinds of ancient weapons, jewelry and art. But the main thing is the Roman bath house. The remains of an entire bath house can be seen in the cellar of the museum.

    De kroniek is a pub for people who like rock music. Besides the bar and the dancefloor there is also a place where you can have a game of darts. This is a very popular cafe amongst those who don’t like dance music very much.

Heerlen Shopping

  • Great music shop

    Satisfaction Records is a great record shop. You can find all sorts of cd’s here that you won’t find in any of the bigger stores. The store mainly sells rock and alternative music. But there is also a speical corner for dance music. In general Satisfaction is cheaper than most other stores. You can also buy concert tickets here.

    And, finally, the fruits of our labor. The dinner guests have arrived. From left (front) to right: Empty chair (me) I'm taking the picture; Marianne; Angela; Dave; Barbara; and Wayne about to pour somebody some more wine.

    Both Wayne and Marianne are gormet cooks. We're going to have other guests over tonight, so had to spend some time in the kitchen preparing everything.

Heerlen Favorites

  • Bicycles are everywhere

    The country has more bicycles than residents... Can you believe that there are more than 40.000 km of cycling routes? Special cycling maps are available from local touristic offices. You can rent them almost anywhere, a proverb says that "a Dutch without a bike is like a fish without water". Heerlen is a typical cycling town.

  • A square...

    It is the central square of the town, which is near the borders with Germany. Maastricht is the capital of the province of Limburg, which is known for its beautiful landscape: castles, green hills, great hiking facilities...

  • Flowers, too...

    Except being the ultimate cycling country, Holland is, somehow, the capital of flowers. Floriade, the most beautiful garden in the world, is held every ten years (the last one was in 2002). At the picture, you see a usual icon from the flower market in the town.
