North Limburg Vacations
North Limburg is situated 80 miles (129 kilometers) southeast of the national capital Amsterdam and approximately 35 miles (56 kilometers) northwest of Duesseldorf.
North Limburg is a treasure trove of history and culture: you’ll find loads to explore when you step through the doors of its four wonderfully curated museums. Stedelijk Museum and Van Bommel Van Dam are among this destination’s must-do museum day outs. Should your schedule allow it, be sure to also visit the Limburgs Museum or perhaps the Museum Land of Thorn.
Get active in the outdoors by taking time out to explore the local nature preserves, such as Meinweg National Park or Hamert Moor. These two protected parks are attractive places to check out local animals and plants.
Sometimes awe-inspiring, sometimes beautifully romantic, the castles and other strongholds surrounding North Limburg are always special places to explore. When you view the distinct shape of the historic Chateau Holtmuhle, it is easy to picture how ruling clans once governed this area.
The St. Christopher's Cathedral is a long-standing place of worship that has stood the test of time. Visit this heritage site to discover its symbolic significance and also to admire the architecture.
There’s absolutely no excuse not to work on your game when staying in North Limburg; visit Roobeek Golf Club, home to the finest fairways and friendliest clubhouse in the area. Rent a set of clubs from the pro shop, see if you can hit a hole in one, then meet fellow golf-obsessives in the clubhouse bar.
Get a taste of local history with a visit to the National War and Resistance Museum, one of the most popular history museums. Admire the museum’s fascinating exhibits and view the historic artifacts that are on show.
North Limburg is one of those places that reveals its hidden gems to visitors who stay a little longer. Before your time is up in this unique destination, be sure to visit The Markt, the Abdijkerk, the Munsterkerk and the St Martinus Kerk.
