Limburg is a very special province in the southernmost part of the Netherlands, with Valkenburg and Maastricht attracting a great many visitors, but Limburg also has a lot more to offer!
In the North, you can find extensive areas of great natural beauty, offering a wide range of possibilities for hikers and cyclists. The central section of the province contains the ‘Maasplassen’lake area with a great many recreational opportunities for boating, sailing etc. This is also where the Designer Outlet in Roermond is located, the largest outlet of its kind in Europe. And in the south, you’ll come across Maastricht and Valkenburg, both located in the hill country so unique for the Netherlands.

Is possible to make an intense spiritual experience for a young person visiting South Limburg?
Apparently the Netherlands are one of the most secularised countries in the world and young people are really not interested on traditional spirituality.
However, the Pilot test of the Spirit Youth that took place from the 24th to the 27th of January in Valkenburg and its surroundings clearly showed up a very interesting and multiple touristic offer for young people interested on spiritual tourism in this area.
A group of young participants will take part in a free one-week pilot test in the Netherlands to experiment activities related to Spirituality.
This project called Spirit Youth is financed by the European program COSME and coordinated by NECSTOUR . It aims to develop a European transnational tourism itinerary for young people around the concept of Spiritual Tourism, understood in a global sense.
'Promotion of Europe as a quality competitive tourism destination'
The event has been organised the 16th December 2015 in Brussels by the European Commission - DG Growth, Tourism, Creative and Emerging Industries Unit
