Het belangrijkste evenement qua aantal bezoekers is Kerststad Valkenburg, de verzamelnaam voor een aantal activiteiten in de maand december, waaronder meerdere kerstmarkten in mergelgrotten en een wekelijkse christmas parade. In 2014 trok dit evenement, dat door de Amerikaanse televisiezender CNN geplaatst werd op een lijst met twaalf beste bestemmingen om de Kerst door te brengen, meer dan een miljoen bezoekers.

Valkenburg aan de Geul is a municipality situated in the southeastern Dutch province of Limburg. The name refers to the central town in the municipality, Valkenburg, and the small river Geul. Sieges and conquests have been the recurrent theme in the history of Valkenburg, especially in connection with Valkenburg castle, seat of the counts of Valkenburg (or Falkenburg). It was here that Beatrice of Falkenburg grew up, who, in 1269 at the age of 15, married 60-year-old Richard of Cornwall, king of the Holy Roman Empire. In December 1672 the castle was once again destroyed by Dutch troops led by William III, trying to prevent the armies of Louis XIV of France from capturing it, this time not to be rebuilt.
In the 19th century, because of the natural environment of the area, Valkenburg became a holiday destination for the well-to-do in the Netherlands. Tourism developed, especially after in 1853 the railway from Maastricht to Heerlen and Aachen opened. Valkenburg railway station is the oldest surviving station in the Netherlands. In the beginning of the 20th century, Dutch architect Pierre Cuypers lived in Valkenburg for several years. He helped develop tourism by designing a hotel, an open-air theater and a copy of the catacombs of Rome. He also restored the medieval church and designed several tombs and a chapel in Gothic Revival style in a graveyard situated on Cauberg, a steep hill outside the town center.
These days Valkenburg is known for its tourist attractions:
Valkenburg castle, of which only a ruin remains;
several other castles, castle farms and stately homes, mostly situated along the Geul river;
Oud-Valkenburg, a small village along the Geul with a particularly picturesque ensemble of a gothic church, two castles (Genhoes and Schaloen) and several historic farmsteads, all in local marlstone;
several watermills, two in the old town;
parts of the city walls and two of three city gates survived (Berkelpoort and Grendelpoort; there are plans for the third gate to be rebuilt);
old court building (Spaans Leenhof);
Saint Nicolas church, a Gothic church in Valkenburg with some late Medieval wood carvings;
Saint Gerlachus church in nearby Houthem Sint-Gerlach, with Baroque frescos by Johann Adam Schöpf, painted on marl;
several former marl quarries (locally called 'caves', although they are largely man-made), offering guided tours; some have interesting charcoal drawings and marl sculptures, one has been recreated as the catacombs of Rome (designed by Pierre Cuypers), another one as a coal mine; in the winter Christmas markets are held in some quarries;
a 30-metre-high (98-foot) viewing tower (Wilhelminatoren) atop a hill, connected to the town below by aerial lift;
Thermae 2000, a sauna and wellness resort;
a Holland Casino branch, as well as a large park around it (Kuurpark);
two amusement parks; one focusing on popular fairy tales (Sprookjesbos);
Valkenburg is situated in a part of the Netherlands that is known for its natural environment and historical buildings. The area, although quite hilly, is perfectly suited for walks or (mountain) bike tours.
Maastricht, the Netherlands: Australians moving to Europe!!
After our first fateful visit to the Netherlands in April and May 2017, we came home to Australia with Europe in our hearts. We sold most of our things, rented out our house, quit our awesome jobs and packed up our charmed lives to move to the Netherlands. Two months after we made the decision to move, we were officially Dutch residents.
We initially lived in Heerlen, but a weekend trip to Maastricht changed all that. Eventually we moved to Maastricht. In this video, maybe you'll see why we fell in love with it.

BIKE ADVENTURE IN AMSTERDAM
We fly to Amsterdam for our first travel experience outside of Germany. The city is beautiful and alive when we arrive, and we rent bikes to ride around the city. We get familiar with our surroundings for the rest of the day and call it an early night after meeting up with our couch surfing host.
- How we chose to stay in Amsterdam.
- How we chose to get around the city.
Join me on my adventure for my first time being in Europe, and my first time vlogging! I will be living in Stuttgart, Germany for the summer - longer if I can successfully obtain a visa. During this time I will be exploring as much of Germany and the rest of Europe as I can.
