Picking up and dropping off passengers

To ensure smooth traffic flow and for the safety of our guests, coaches are not allowed in the centre. For coaches, a pick-up and drop-off stop has been set up in the car park next to the Odapark. From this stop, passengers can easily reach the centre of the City of Christmas on foot.

When passengers need to be picked up again, the coach can drive back to the pick-up and drop-off stop to collect the passengers from there. The directions to the pick-up and drop-off stop and the coach parking lot are clearly signposted.

Traffic guidance is always available at the pick-up and drop-off stop.

Directions for parking your coach

A large parking lot for coaches is reserved opposite the pick-up and drop-off stop. You can park your coach there by following the instructions from the traffic controllers. In case this parking lot is full, a parking overflow lot will be set up at the Hekerweg. You can only use this lot with instructions from the traffic controllers. You can see the directions to the Hekerweg and from there back to Valkenburg on the attached map. From the Hekerweg it takes approximately  20 minutes to walk to the City of Christmas Valkenburg.

Attention!

In order to limit the nuisance to our residents as much as possible, it is forbidden to let the engine of your coach run idle for more than five minutes. In addition, the prolonged use of your parking heater or generator is not allowed. This will be strictly monitored. We count on your cooperation.
