From Valkenburg you can easily walk into hillside forests. Relax for a day in Limburg! You will also pass through the picturesque Geuldal. At Parkhotel Valkenburg you can grab a terrace, so that you set off with enough energy. You soon climb into the Biebosch, a beautiful forest where you mainly see oaks and beech trees. Many types of plants also grow there. From the forest you walk through the meadows, it is wonderfully quiet here in this tree-lined spot. You can also enjoy nature in the Sint-Jansbos, and you will also pass some former marl quarries. Between the meadows, you descend to Schaloen Castle. The fairytale castle originally dates from the twelfth century, but has been renovated several times. Back at Parkhotel Valkenburg you can continue to enjoy the Burgundian Limburg life.
