This trip is a must for Christmas Market connoisseurs! Valkenburg offers the most incredibly unique Christmas Market experience by hosting the entire market in the naturally formed caves that run underneath the town. Known as the Velvet Cave, this underground system was formerly used as escape routes and shelters during war times. The caves now set the stage for a delightful holiday experience with special displays for Santa Claus workshop, his room of presents and his reindeer and sleigh along with stalls of handcrafted treasures for purchase.
During your visit be sure to admire the wall murals, sculptures and the unique 18th century chapel. The twinkling lights, merry music and aromas of Christmas baked goods that flood the caves are sure to get you in the mood for the holidays! The Valkenburg Caves provide a truly unique experience as well as great opportunity to shop for traditional Dutch Christmas crafts, goodies, or to view a Christmas exhibition, all of which are set up in the caves. Entrance to the main cave is included. This popular tour is not your average Christmas Market!
