Discover the wonderful world of caves

Those who think of Valkenburg immediately think of the marl quarry caves. Things would have to take an unusual turn if you didn’t end up in the wonderful world of caves in Valkenburg when you stay for a weekend in Grand Hotel Voncken - Hampshire Classic. But there's lots more to do nearby!

Culture
The history of Kasteelruïne van Valkenburg goes back to the eleventh century. You can visit the former quarters of knights such as Walram de Rosse and Gosewijn and view the knight’s hall, weapon room and underground escape routes. The escape routes eventually lead to the Fluweelengrot. Together with a guide you can take a cave trip past wall paintings, inscriptions and a chapel dating from the French period (18th Century). Another cave in the area is Gemeentegrot. Tours are given here too. The fantastic Openluchttheater Valkenburg offers an exciting annual summer programme of music, theatre and dance.

Children
At the Drielandenpunt in Vaals you’re in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany simultaneously. The playground and maze are extra attractions for the children. At AGoGo Valkenburg the kids can zoom 375 metres down the toboggan run.

Golf
There are various beautiful golf courses in the area of the hotel, such as Golf & Countryclub Hoenshuis, Zuid Limburgse Golf & Countryclub Wittem and Het Rijk van Margraten.

Events
Valkenburg has a rich cycling history. The World Cycling Championships has been held five times on the roads in Valkenburg and surroundings, the last time in 2012. Other cycling competitions also frequently race up the renowned Cauberg, such as the annual Amstel Gold Race.

Christmas
Valkenburg Christmas markets are legendary. In the dark days before Christmas, Valkenburg is transformed into an attractive Christmas town. Enjoy the countless lights, Christmas trees, the culinary Route d’Amuse walk and the underground Christmas markets in Fluweelengrot and Gemeentegrot.

Restaurant Voncken
Visitors from across the country praise the kitchen of this hospitable restaurant. Simply because here they know what good cooking is here. Just how good can be seen from the guests who come here. Celebrity chefs Margo Reuten from Da Vinci and Erik van Loo from Parkheuvel are spotted here regularly. The kitchen is the domain of Head Chef Hans Pijls, who has more than 40 years’ cooking experience. He cooks pure food and with a feeling for French cooking history. This results in delicious, epicurean dishes that also match the season perfectly. What about fried goose liver with black pudding and caramelised apple, followed by partridge with sauerkraut? And of course with a delicious and fitting wine from the extensive wine menu, such as Elzasser Pinot Gris.

“No Frills but Okay”

My girlfriend and I spent two nights at this hotel over the Hemelvaart weekend. The hotel is easy to find: don't be discouraged, the town gets interesting just behind this square; the walk from the station can be a tad discouraging. The hotel was a basic older, family-run hotel: friendly staff and slightly outdated everything. The room was clean and had a renovated bathroom. The bed was a bit disappointing: one mattress too hard, the other too soft. The most concerning part was that there's no deadbolt on the door. This door and the walls are paper-thin, a noise curfew sign would have helped remind people that other guests are sleeping. Breakfast was classic continental, and very nice. The hotel is one block away from dozens of restaurants and shops. While we would probably choose to stay in Maastricht the next time we return to Limburg, the Voncken was a fine (if not Grand) hotel that seems par for the course in Valkenburg.

“This hotel is wonderful -”

My husband and myself were also on the Ohio Northern Soccer trip. This hotel was so nice - great rooms, great staff, so nice to come to and feel at home. Love the outside café and the fact that we could finish our evenings out there with our wine/beer and playing uker. Just love this place and would hope that some day we can come again!

“First trip to Europe”

This was our first trip to Europe, and it could not have been more enjoyable. We were in Holland with the Ohio Northern University men's soccer team. 41 of us checked in August 2nd, and the staff at the hotel did not miss a beat. Breakfasts were very good. I don't believe we ate a lunch in the hotel, too many shops and cafes within walking distance. The number of evenings we were in the hotel for dinner was limited, but again, good food! We arrived on the hottest day ever recorded in Holland, but the rooms were cool. The room was a good size and the beds were very comfortable. The management and staff went above and beyond the call of duty on several occasions during our stay and truly seemed to enjoy their chosen profession. I would highly recommend this hotel if you will be staying in the Valkenburg area. You will not be disappointed.

“Perfect”

Yes this hotel is dated, thank god - that's what gives it its charm and makes it stand out from the herd! Love, love, love the dated charm of this place. It doesn't take much imagination to wonder just how grand the balls and parties here must have been. Pack your diamond tiara! Besides that, wonderful-sized and very comfortable rooms, friendly helpful staff, excellent breakfast, right in town. Look no further.

“Christmas Markets in Valkenburg”

Having visited Valkenburg last year by coach, staying at one of the most appalling hotels we have ever stayed in, and not having enough time to explore, this year we decided to arrange our travel and hotel ourselves. We flew to Amsterdam Schiffol Airport, train to Valkenburg, and walked to hotel. The reception area told us it was a totally different class of hotel to last year, we were greeted by a friendly young lady at the desk. Our rooms were excellent. The location was also very good, away from the main run of christmas celebrations, but only a two minute walk away to join them. We arrived Saturday afternoon and the queues for the caves were really long, so decided to go after breakfast Sunday morning, brilliant, we were able to go straight in before the coaches arrived and walk leisurely around the caves, sampling the wares and enjoying a drink and Berliner. In the afternoon, totally exhausted, we walked back to hotel and were able to have a good rest before setting off again in the evening. Plenty of good eating places, heaters and blankets supplied if you wanted to sit outside, and the highlight of the evening which we had not seen before or in fact had anybody mentioned was the christmas procession involving so many children dancing with floats etc. lovely christmassy feeling. Our only regret was there were no tea making facilities in the room, so when luggage weight is all important to have to carry your own kettle is a little disappointing for a 4* hotel. Good selection of food at breakfast. No hesitation is recommending this hotel.
