Just there existence and story is fascinating. It started as a mine several hundred years ago that developed into several hundred kilometers of tunnels, of which only 80 km remain today. I took my nephew there, even though he preferred the fort, and he was grateful. Our guide, Jelena, told us about the geological history, the history of the caves,... More

We took an English speaking tour of the north tunnels today. Our tour guide Jelena was very knowledgeable and spoke both English and Dutch. The historic "caves" were cool, dark except for our lanterns. A doable walk for both young and old with interesting stories of the people who inhabited these halls long ago. Very glad we took this tour.... More

Caves are very interesting but having visited very similar caves in Kent England felt they could have done more to make them more authentic. Having said that they are set on a very pretty hillside with a lovely bar with terrace which has beautiful views. We took the boat from Maastricht so it made for a very nice afternoon. Take... More

Interesting visit but limited information provided on the history , geology of the site. Worth the trip to pass an afternoon.

Expansive network of caves that are absolutely worth a visit. Although our guide Nick spoke mainly Dutch, he did his utmost to get everyone to understand the many interesting stories about the caves and their history. There is ample free parking at the base of the hill.

We did the fort and caves combo. Tours started punctually and were well presented with interesting facts and stories. Willy was our fort guide and Rudi took us through the caves. Unfortunately no wifi at the restaurant, but the view over Maastricht is beautiful. Bus 4 is a cheap and convenient way to get to the venue. The walk in... More

We took a 1 hour tour of the North caves with an English speaking guide Jelena. She was excellent, very knowledgable and even gave us the experience of walking along the tunnels with no lights in the pitch black. A good and inexpensive way to spend an hour and some fascinating drawings, sculptures and interesting history.

Both the caves (really tunnels) and the fort are two separate but interesting tours available in English. Our group leaders explained some aspects of the history surrounding these special man made features but there is only so much you can learn in an hour. We would have liked an opportunity to learn more but access is limited to only tour... More

This is an average activity turned into something great! The guide (Sarah) is very articulate and masters storytelling. The history and story of this cave network comes alive and makes this tour surprisingly interesting and fun. Its not too short nor long and includes a unique experience that will dazzle your senses. Perfect tour to combine witha beautiful walk around... More
