The tangible history and characteristics of the location give your event or ceremony that unique and fairytale like feeling without too much decoration. Just by looking at the location, it is clear why the former Castle of Valkenburg was fiercely contested throughout history. The view over the valley is phenomenal. The Velvet Cave has always been a safe haven for oppressed people. Step inside and experience a whole different world...

The new restaurant ´the Haselderhof´ opened at the Castle Ruins in July 2013. Catering for your event or ceremony can be arranged in cooperation with this restaurant. Unfortunately, this is not possible at the Velvet Cave. We can offer you coffee/tea/and refreshements in the Velvet Cave. You are also more then welcome to hire your own caterer.




The foundation can provide electricity for your event. In the evening the lighting of the Castle Ruins can be customized to your needs. Large parts of the cave already have set-up sound systems. You are also free to arrange your own light and sound.
