Valkenburg, Holland

One of Holland's most visited tourist areas

Holland’s most visited tourist area outside Amsterdam, is amongst our most popular destinations.

The popularity of Valkenburg can no doubt be explained by the wide range of attractions and facilities this picturesque town has to offer. However for our clients, Valkenburg’s location, very close to the German and Belgian borders, is an added and unique attraction for a soccer based tour since teams can enjoy a truly ‘International’ soccer tour, even on the shortest of trips.

Valkenburg town centre with its quaint cobbled streets is a lively venue both day and night. By day the friendly street cafes are always a favourite with our guests to relax over a meal or to sample the Dutch beer, plus there are numerous shops to browse. For a treat try the Thermae 2000 which boasts a wealth of mineral pools, steam rooms and saunas. In the evening the town comes alive with all types of restaurants to choose plus bars playing music and if you are still feeling energetic there are some clubs and a casino. We think you’ll findsomething for everyone.

With Valkenburg's unique position close to the German and Belgium borders, you're sure to find great friendly fixtures against a variety of teams, or if you are travelling during a Bank Holiday - why not enter an international tournament?  We have a great selection available including the Holland Easter Open, SV Laar, or the Parkstad Limburg Cup.
