Christmas Market in a cave?! Valkenburg, Netherlands

What a wonderful little town! And what an original Christmas market in a cave!!

Here’s a short video to see what it’s like!

Valkenburg is a beautiful little town

There are two caves, the Municipality Cave and the Velvet Cave. The Municipality cave is a lot better than the Velvet Cave, so if you want to do only one, this is it!

The Municipality Cave

The Christmas market in the Municipality cave is vibrant!

The Velvet Cave

Here the atmosphere is different, there are many old paintings on the walls – and still there are lots of bright decorations as well

Kids friendly restaurant

There are 250 sorts of pancakes and a small indoor playground!
