  • Tour of a copy of the Roman katakomben is really worth it. Good guide that much has to say.

  • Had a nice tour. Guide was in no hurry and knew a lot to tell. We recommend that you slightly warm to dress, it is but a degree or eleven below.

  • They are a few tunnels on the northern slope of the Cauberg, in a quarry in Marl (a type of sedimentary rock composed mainly of calcite and clay) were created in 1908 were some replicas of the best catacombs of Rome. They were carried out under the supervision of de el arquitecto Dr. Cuypers and financed by businessman Jan Diepen. They are very nice and are well preserved. Visit costs 9 euros it is guided lasts an hour and fourth is in Dutch, but to us in English already made it us that persons who made the visit with us not them thought it was evil and the guide was in agreement. I liked very much and you can make pictures without flash. 100% recommended

  • Since I visited in the summer the trip around the catacomb was only one hour but the tour guide mentioned that it would take a day if we were to go into every chamber. This was a great experience that I definitely wouldn't miss!!!! The guide was the sweetest young lady who explained the stories and the background about the catacombs/ everything we saw in there. The guide in the airborne museum jacket really made the whole experience worth it. I also liked that we walked together with candles lit as that really added to the whole experience. The only negative point would be the price but MORE SO knowing that there were so many more interesting paths down there that were left unexplored.
  • Really surprising tour, lots of interesting information, enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. It's not so much tombes that were made by the romans as it's an exact(!) replica of the most interesting and beautiful tombes from the outskirts of Rome.
  • Interested in history? Want to get away from the tourist hustle and bustle of Valkenburg? This is the place. Lovely recreations of Roman catacombs make for a unique experience. Friendly staff too! Highly recommended.
  • A unique place in the netherland one of hollands great architects Berlage was inspired by the rome catacombs and made exact copies of the undercities of Rome. Despite the german forces trying to destroy the caves for ammunition storage (yeah I know; right?! ) the caves survived and are being painstakingly restaured volunteers. GO and visit this unique place in the world, it will be an experience you remember for the rest of your life. And after you've been go and get a leeuwtje, you deserved it
  • Working every day except saturday and sunday at 14:00. Do not open if less than 4 persons are coming.
