SPECTACULAR LIGHT SHOW

GIMME SHELTER

In honour of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of South Limburg, we have created a new light show (18 min) with lots of original visual material.

The title of the Cave Experience’s new light show, ‘Gimme Shelter’, refers to the famous song by The Rolling Stones from 1969. In it, they sing about how important it is to have a safe hiding-place in times of danger. The Municipal Cave (‘Gemeentegrot’) has been such a hiding-place through the centuries, for example during the days before the liberation on 17 September 1944. There is a Nuclear fallout shelter, which opened in 1979. In the Netherlands, it is the only nuclear fallout shelter you can visit.
