Visit Castle Ruins

Visit the Castle Ruins and go back to the times of knights and damsels. Wander through the great hall, the armoury and the chapel of the only elevated fortress in the Netherlands; since 1050 a landmark of Valkenburg and surroundings. Many battles were fought here but in 1672 it was blown up by the army of Stadtholder Willem III. The panoramic view of Valkenburg from the Castle ruins is unequalled.

A visit to the castle ruins takes approximately 30 minutes time.
