Miljoenenlijn Station Valkenburg - Valkenburg
Valkenburg Station is the oldest station still in use in the Netherlands. When the railroad line between Aachen and Maastricht was built in 1845, Holland's first international train connection, a station was built in Valkenburg.
Constructed in 1853 in the style of early English neo-Gothic, the building was built mainly of marl stone. Besides being the oldest station, it is also one of the most popular station buildings. Its corner towers and battlements make it look like a castle and give it a romantic picture. The building is listed as a national monument.
From Valkenburg station you can get on the historic Miljoenenlijn to travel in the old-fashioned steam locomotive. This train runs from Valkenburg via Schin op Geul, Wijlre-Gulpen, Eys-Wittem and Simpelveld to Kerkrade or to the German thaltes Bocholtz and Vetschau.
