We did not have opportunities to take proper photos as the train was moving or opportunities to ask questions about the caves. We were on the train the whole time and was driven all around by the tour guide who gave her commentary in Dutch (which I did not understand). I asked the lady selling the tickets if there were tours in English but she was quite abrupt with her response when she said it was in Dutch so I have no clue if there are English tours. Our tour was the last one for the day and it definitely felt hurried and rushed. Pity as the caves looker very interesting and they had a story to tell.

Great experience visiting 'de Gemeentegrot'. You can choose to do the visit on foot or by some sort of train. My son wanted to walk and it turned out only 3 other people went for the same option. So we almost had a private guided tour, and honestly the guide did a great job telling about the different roles, the history, and much more. Even dinosaurs were included - very much appreciated by my son.
Simply said, great experience and worth visiting again in the future.

An interesting man made cave which is definitely worth visiting. 70km of man made tunnels that go up to 15m underground is definitely impressive. Tours are an hour which gives a very good view of how it is living underground.

The reason behind the 3 stars is the slight disappointment of no English tours available. Neither an English audio tour, nor an English guided tour. Considering the amount of international tourists, would have been quite nice to have it. The English "information sheet" which they gave us also at the till included quite an amount of spelling mistakes and direct Dutch translations that made no sense. If the guides were "friendly" as well they would try to add-in the highlights in English, but they do not seem open to this at all.

We took a tour in the train and were pleasantly surprised, the only thing we would change is make it longer! We had a fun guide explaining things. The caves are full of art and some war history. They should really start selling some postcards with proper photos or other souvenirs there!

Such a great job they did to decorate the cave and what a lovely ambience !!! The live music where was really nice too where that little tavern was.We ate and drank here while enjoying the music and we had a great time with all the little shops with nice Xmass gifts.Do this cave first and the other cave in Valkenburg will look like a dungeon.

While visiting Maastricht we decided to do a deviation to the near city of Valkenburg (European city of Christmas 2018). Convinced by the many good reviews we decided to visit the largest and most visited underground Christmas market in Europe.
We never did a worst choice, we completely threw away 14€ (7 each). Actually it is not a Christmas market but a sort of flea market, just a small part of the stands were about Christmas and even in this case they were not special at all. The area was really crowded and there wasn’t any special decoration (just some trees, penguins and really dusty Santa Claus). We left as soon as possible (checking every stand) in order to conclude a real nightmare.
P.s. I suggest to everyone to go to the bathroom before entering in the Cave because with the 7€ that you pay for just walking among the stands the bathroom is not included.

The ambience in the cave was so lovely.They put a lot of effort into the decorations and even the live music was good near the small tavern they made in the cave.
Lot's of shops with differents Christmass stuff for you to shop.

Whenever you visit the province of Limburg a visit to one of the caverns is a must do's. The Gemeentegrot is a nice cavern which you can visit either by train or by foot. The train ride is approximately 30 minutes and gives a nice overview of the highlights.

Unbelievable how people can recommend such a place: 7 euros for a smelly man made cave with Christmas trees here and there, an horrible illumination and people selling super low quality products.
The town itself is a turistic trap, nothing interesting apart from the castle.

At the opening of the cave in the morning, went on a tour by train.
Fantastic view, especially at the end of the tour there is an exhibition. Very beautiful.
The guide was a friendly professional.
Very nice to see this piece of history.
