Hilltop Ruins

Back to Valkenburg...the ruins of the old castle sit high on a hill. That's right, I did say hill; the southern part of the Netherlands, sandwiched inbetween Germany and Belgium, can be quite hilly.

From the Valkenburg tourism website: "High up on Heunsberg hill, right in the middle of Valkenburg, lies the only hilltop fortress the Netherlands landscape boasts. The castle ruins constitute one of the many proofs of the rich and buzzing past of our town. A tangible past that goes back as far as the Middle Ages."
