Christmas in MergelRijk

A wonderful Christmas story!

Christmas, the most beautiful time of the year. A time when we, too, are allowed to unpack extra and dress and illuminate everything even more attractively. MergelRijk turns into an enchanting and cozy Christmas cave during the magical Christmas period. Discover the Christmas story in our 30 meter long miniature world. A true must see in Christmas town Valkenburg.

In the magical atmosphere of the marl cave you travel from Nazareth to Bethlehem and you already meet the camels with the three Kings. You imagine yourself in a winter fairytale book and discover the Lemax Christmas villages with thousands of inhabitants. The winter landscapes covered with a layer of snow make you feel like you have landed in a Christmas movie.

Walk through the marl corridors and discover the special sculptures carved from soft, yellow marl stone. Learn more about the history of our region and watch the Christmas film of the one and only Sand Wizard who makes beautiful creations. Get started in the cave workshop and create your own marl souvenir!
