    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    When you bring kids to Valkenburg there is lots of fun for them too.
    For instance in amusementspark de Valkenier .
    With only €5 as entry fee for all attractions except the minicars and roundtrip Valkenburg it is the best priced park of Europe.
    They are open all summer from 10:00-17:00.

    Dino monstercave

    The prehistorische monstergrot :
    A cave with dinosaur statues. Only open in summer. a great kids attraction.

    Since 2005 the prehistoric monstercave is closed! The dinosaur statues and neanderthal objects are moved to the Valkenier. They will form a new attraction in the amusentspark. The amusentpark for younger children has the same owner as the monstercave. The price of the amusentpark is not raised.

    The cave itself is owned by the municipality and it is not known yet what is going to happen here.

    Themepark Sprookjesbos

    A nice themepark for your kids until 8 years of age, not suited for larger kids in my opinion. A kind of tableaus of wellknown fairy tales, a nice play ground, a western town. A wild water ride and karting in a grotto.

    I think it's a bit expensive for the time you will spend here, which will be 2 hours at the most, but that is only my humble opinion!

    Opening Hours
    Open from 10:00 to 17:00 hrs.
    Sun. and holidays to 18:00 hrs.

    For dates look at there website, only open during summerseason.

    Entrance fees
    -Children and Adults € 7.95

    Chairlift to Wilhelmina Tower

    by Pijlmans Written Sep 23, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can take a chairlift up the hill to the Wilhelmina Tower.

    A retour ticket is 3.50 euro, 2.50 euro for kids under 12.

    On top of the hill you can make a ride on a toboggan/bobsled or visit the Wilhelmina Tower.

    It may pay off to get a combi-ticket for both the chairlift and the toboggan rides!

    Alternatively, you can take the stairs up the hill, they are to the right of hotel Atlanta (Neerhem 20).

    Op top of the hill with the Wilhelmina Tower, you can make a ride with a toboggan/bobsled.

    You can get on top of the hill using the chairlift (Neerhem 44, http://www.kabelbaan.nl/) or take the stairs next to hotel Atlanta (Neerhem 20, http://www.hotelatlanta.nl/).

    NB: The more coins you buy for the toboggan ride, the cheaper they get!

    Sprookjesbos / Fairytale forest Valkenburg

    by Pavlik_NL Written Jan 22, 2006

    In Valkenburg they have a great simple place for children. Fairytale land Valkenburg offers for the youngest among us a nice combination of attractions. Fairytales is the keyword here and one steps from one to another in this small park that offers a good afternoon's entertainment. In an attempt to keep up with the "Efteling" and "Disney" they added few spectacular attractions too. A waterslide and a ship might be able to satisfied the teenagers a little, but it keeps being a park for 10 years old and under.
