There are several other cave tour options in Valkenburg.
The Velvet Caves are another cave network that actually run under the castle ruins. These mining caves were created when stone was removed to build the castle.
The castle was destroyed in 1678 by the Dutch to prevent it from falling into the hands of the French under Napoleon.
It is unique for being the only castle in the Netherlands built on top of a hill.
Our walk back to our car took us through some of the most scenic parts of Valkenburg.
The pedestrian passageways pass under restored city walls and castle gates and are lined with cafes.
The only downside to this tour was that it was given in Dutch.
They are exposed due to erosion and the building of the present-day road.We grabbed some cheese pinwheels, — and sat on a bench to eat.We had 1pm tour reservations at the Romeinse Katakomben, which are complete replicas of 14 of the Roman Catacombs built into an old marlstone mine with unbelievable attention to detail.Interestingly the caves architect, Pierre Cuypers, was also the architect of the Castle in Utrecht we visited last week, as well as Amsterdam’s Central Station and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.Everyone on the tour was given a candle to light the way through the caves.
