Surrounding area

Résidence Valkenburg is located in Schin op Geul, Limburg, less than ten minutes' drive from Valkenburg itself. The river Geul meanders through the Limburg landscape, past the holiday park and flows into the river Maas. Along the Geul, there are various water mills and beautiful cycling and walking routes through ‘het Geuldal’ nature reserve. Ask at the reception on the park about our free cycling and walking routes through the surrounding area.

The area stands out for its unique Zuid Limburg hills, blended with forests and water. The area has a rich history that can be seen in the various old farms, timbered houses and national monuments.

In Valkenburg, there are various shops, restaurants and cultural hotspots. You could, for example, visit the castle ruins of Valkenburg, the municipal cave or go tobogganing on the Valkenburg toboggan run. Halfway through November, throughout December and in the first week of January there is a unique Christmas market in Valkenburg. The Christmas market takes place both above ground and under the municipal cave and the Velvet Cave, and twice a day the Christmas Parade leaves through the centre of Valkenburg.
