• 11 Things To Do in Heerlen – Mural Capital of the Netherlands

     

    We always like to travel for as long and as far away as possible, for some reason we think the best things are always found abroad. And of course we have found many beautiful spots all over our world during our travels the past few years. But with the current restrictions we felt more comfortable looking a bit closer to home to spend our holiday.

    The Van der Valk Hotel Group is an international hotel business from Dutch origin.
