Abroad Close to home

Many Dutch tourists get the feeling that they are abroad when they visit Limburg. This is, of course, partly due to the fact that Limburg borders on other countries and that these foreign influences are very noticeable here. Belgium and Germany are literally around the corner. From North and Central Limburg, you cross the border in a flash. Enrich your stay in the heart of Limburg with a visit to Burgundian Flanders with its rich mining history and beautiful nature or to the hospitable and friendly Germans where you are within an hour in the centre of world cities such as Düsseldorf, Aachen and Cologne.

Germany, great in all its simplicity

Our eastern neighbours welcome you 'herzlich wilkommen'. And they mean it. German hospitality and friendliness come to you as soon as you cross the border. Not only are the great world cities of Düsseldorf and Aachen just a stone's throw away, but just across the border in Limburg there are a few authentic German towns that are well worth a visit. Brüggen, Wassenberg and Wegberg are surrounded by beautiful nature, have historic town centres with many attractions and where many activities and events are organised. There is so much to do and experience that you will feel truly abroad!

Belgium, Burgundy friendly

If there is a country where you can enjoy the Burgundian lifestyle and where life is still easy, then it is Belgium. The Meuse forms the natural border between Dutch and Belgian Limburg and on whichever side of the Meuse you find yourself, it feels like one Limburg. Visit cities like Maaseik, Maasmechelen, Genk and Hasselt and discover the rich mining past they are still so proud of here. Enjoy the breathtaking nature in the cross-border nature reserves of Grenspark Kempen~Broek and Rivierpark Maasvallei.
