Only together will we get the coronavirus under control! That is why in Zuid-Limburg we stick to the government's roadmap. Check the websites of the providers for current measures for catering, cultural institutions, museums, accommodation facilities, saunas, and casinos.
What are the COVID-19 measures in the caves (ventilation, mouth mask, distance, walking routes, etc.)?
According to the restrictions taken by the dutch government, you will need the CoronaCheck-app/COVID certificate to get access to the events in the Christmas caves. Check the websites of the various caves for the specific COVID-19 safety measures in that place at that time.
What is the estimated time that people will be present in a cave as we now have to book an arrival time and want to buy other tickets?
Count on a visit time of approx. 1 to 1.5 hours per cave.
Are the caves accessible during Christmas in Valkenburg for wheelchair users and disabled people?
The Christmas Markets in the Municipal Cave and in the Velvet Cave are wheelchair-accessible. Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to visit MergelRijk and Winter Wonderland with a wheelchair, walker or pram. Please contact the relevant organization if any special requests occur.
Am I allowed to take my dog into the caves?
No, unfortunately it is not permitted to take your four-legged friend (or any other pet) underground, neither in a dog stroller or carrier. This is for the safety of both people and animals. Fortunately, there are plenty of cozy outdoor cafes where someone from your party could wait with the dog.
