Valkenburg Christmas Market Guide

Valkenburg Christmas Market

Abundant with lights, trees and decorations the cosy, underground Christmas market is the ultimate festive wonderland. In 2013 Father Christmas again took up residence in the Velvet Cave, where everyone is welcome to visit.

The organisers have an exhibitor policy to ensure a diverse range of special Christmas and gift items including cribs in many designs, mouth-blown ornaments, carved decorations and do-it-yourself Christmas cards. Don't forget to stock up on Belgian chocolates to add extra luxury to your Christmas at home.

When visiting the market in the Velvet Cave you can also enjoy the mural paintings, sculptures and 18th century chapel. You can also see the Valkenburg Castle - the Netherlands' only hilltop castle. The shops and restaurants also have convenient opening hours during market time so visitors can really enjoy the town.
