Valkenburg: Christmas City

Last week I stayed in Valkenburg (Limburg - the Netherlands). In the months of November and December it might be better known as "Christmas City Valkenburg"

(#1 : Christmascity Valkenburg)


Our apartment was on top of, for cyclists, notorious Cauberg. Each time it is a big climb back to the apartment, but the apartment was excellent.

(#2 : Kasteeldomein De Cauberg)


(#3 : Kasteeldomein De Cauberg)


First i will start to make trip to the center of Valkenburg (which consists mainly of restaurants and arcades exist) to show you the city.

(#4 : Grendelpoort)


(#5 : Singing christmastree)


(#6 : Kerkstraat)


(#7 : Castle 'Den Halder')


(#8 : de Geul)


Besides the center of Valkenburg there are during these cold months, the Christmas markets in the "Fluweelengrot" and "Gemeentegrot". Twice a week there also is a little Christmas parade through the city.

(#9 : Fluweelengrot)


(#10 : Fluweelengrot)


(#11 : Gemeentegrot)


(#12 : Christmas parade)


(#13 : Christmas parade)


Also in Maastricht hung, partly due to the snow, a Christmas atmosphere in and around the center.

(#14 : Vrijthof)


(#15 : St. Servaasbasiliek)


At least i will show you thise pictures made in and around Valkenburg:

(#16 : Snowmacro)


(#17 : Frozen musician)


(#18 : Castleruine)


(#19 : View from appartment)
