Christmas Market 2014

Hi, have booked to come to Valkenburg this year for the Christmas market etc. Can anyone please tell me if the Velvet Cave and the municipal Cave markets are the one and the same? Also on a 48 hour visit where else would you recommend to visit during our stay..

Kind regards

@Cessonfire - no the Velvet Cave and the Municipal Cave are different caves. See the wikipedia on this. (use translate.google.com for the translation) nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grotten_van_Valkenburg

Visited last Christmas - avoid weekends, it is extremely busy (like waiting for +1 hour before you can enter the caves after 10 am) See www.kerststadvalkenburg.nl/index.php… as well for more information.

We loved the sand sculptures a lot! Visited the christmas market in the municipal cave and saw the christmas parade (only the parade wasn't very parade like).

If you are there please make a visit to the city of Maastricht as well.

We stayed at the holiday park of Landal Greenparks - 10 min walk on the Cauberg from the centre of Valkenburg
