Valkenburg & Three Countries

Valkenburg & Three Countries

Medieval Valkenburg is a hidden treasure of Holland. With a ruined castle, ancient houses, water mills dotted along the river and a pedestrianised main square, it is easy to picture a bygone era of medieval life, and it is from here that we are based for our fantastic packaged tour of Southern Holland and its neighbouring countries.
