About the Municipal cave


In Valkenburg, or actually beneath Valkenburg, you will find a truly fascinating world. It is the Municipal cave, visited by many every year.
The exploitation of this cave began some 2000 years ago, when the Romans needed the marl from the soil as building material. You will be confronted with the primal force of nature, which has Always changed its appearance.

Fossils and layers of shells make these natural conditions clearly visible, dating back to long before our era. Also, the marl stone walls in the Municipal cave provide a fascinating overview of different artistic expressions and the living conditions of countless generations of people. You will find murals and plaques that tell stories of the past.

You will also find the remnants of structures built by hunted locals, who used the caves as a shelter. This combination of nature and culture provides a unique story. A story that gets even more interesting in the mysterious dark maze of underground corridors. When you are visiting Limburg, make sure to visit the Municipal caves in Valkenburg.
