“Great Christmas market!”

Castle Ruins & Velvet Cave
Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

Nice cave with lots of vendors. Fun for the kids to run around. The streets surrounding are also filled with Christmas spirit.

The tour is interesting if you understand Dutch or German. Although I don't speak any of these languages, I perceived the enthousiasm of the guide when trasnmitting the feelings during the visit: He gave us a guide of the tour in English, very nice person. Recommnendations: Wear winter clothes, at the end of the tour is pretty chilly, start first with the tour and then continue with the visit to the castle (buy the combined ticket), when buying the ticket read first the guide, it will help you to understand better.

The Cave and castle ruins were definitely worth a visit. There is a tour every half hour in Dutch and if you are English speaking they give you a print out of all the important facts and commentary on the interesting things to see. You have to take the tour otherwise getting lost would be certain. At the end of the tour you come out in the castle ruins and can explore those with good views over Falkenberg.
Well worth while. Adults cost 9 euros each which includes the 50 min tour and you can roam the ruins at leisure afterwards.

We had a great tour through the Velvet Caves and The castle ruins last summer with famile members from the states. They wanted to see the south of Holland (Limburg).The guide told a lot of historical things about the caves and the castle in a rather funny way. There are some very nice charcoal drawings and sculptures on the walls and a very nicely carved out church. A nice thing to do on a hot day because of the constant temperature in the caves.
