Support Valkenburg history

This allows the foundation to maintain the Castle Ruins and Velvet Cave with no government subsidies. So when you visit the underground revelries, you are also supporting a piece of Valkenburg (and Dutch) history.
During the Christmas market, the Castle Ruins are also open to the public whitin their opening times. Our foundation presereves the right to close the Castle Ruins when dangerous due to wether conditions.
