Christmas in MergelRijk Valkenburg

It’s Christmas-time in the most delightful cave in Valkenburg!

This historic cave tells dozens of informative tales about marlstone and caves against the backdrop of Christmas: beautiful marlstone sculptures, works of art, films and interactive tablets. Enjoy to your heart’s content the special film created by the MergelTovenaar (“marlstone wizard”) in which he sketches the story of Christmas in marlstone. Another highlight is the life-size marlstone sculpture of Rembrandt’s Nightwatch. In the cave’s studio you can create your own Christmas souvenir made from marlstone and, last but not least, try out the specially produced cave ham and cave beer in the Restaurant. A visit to this cave is a multifaceted experience that should not be missed!
