From Valkenburg you can take a beautiful bike ride to Brunssum. In the hilly countryside you will find plenty of nature, tranquility and cultural history.

The route takes you through hamlets such as Klimmen and Craubeek. Here you will see the characteristic farms for which South Limburg is known. Just past Hoensbroek you enter the Brunssummerheide, the only large heathland area in South Limburg. Thanks to the height differences, you have beautiful views of heathland and forests. With a bit of luck you will hear the 'cowbells' ringing, a sign that the shepherd with his flock of sheep is nearby. A nice sight!

Unique walk
You drive back to Valkenburg through the quiet rural hill country. Along the way you can take a look at Hoensbroek Castle. You can also see beautiful monuments in picturesque Valkenburg itself, such as East Castle and the ruins of Valkenburg Castle on the Heunsberg. The base for this route is Parkhotel Valkenburg, an attractive and hospitable four-star hotel.

Hoensbroek Castle
Do you want to make it a nice long day? Then you will probably also have time to visit Hoensbroek Castle, one of the largest castles in the Netherlands. And most beautiful. There was a motte on this site as early as around 1225. Due to its strategic location on the trade routes to Maastricht, Aachen and Cologne, this original castle developed into the largest castle between the Maas and the Rhine. Well worth a visit, because this enormous castle museum is a true experience. You can wander through more than forty castle rooms.
