Review this Christmsa Market
Customer Review
By Linda S, South Shields, UK November 2015
We couldn't fault the atmosphere and goods on offer in the Velvet Cave but we were a little disappointed in the larger cave as the goods on sale were no different to those at our local markets at home. However, we had a thoroughly enjoyable 3 night stay in wonderful Valkenburg and we will certainly be back there in 2016.
By tony lawson, brilliant valkenburg
we heard about the market whilst on holiday in Germany the 2 hour drive was well worth it we had a brilliant day in 2010 we are to return this year and stay in Valkenburg.
