Born is a small town situated in the scenic Sittard-Geleen municipality in the Limburg province of the Netherlands. Tourists from all over the world love to visit and enjoy its unique combination of natural scenery, heritage spots and culture. With many cheap flights to Born available, spending a weekend in this beautiful town is convenient, more so since it is just 14 km away from the international airport at Maastricht.
The tourist highlight of Born is Castle Park built around the ruins of the castle Born that has a long and eventful history. The family of Roasting was the last occupant of the castle before it was ravaged by fire in 1930. Now the Castle Park is a lovely garden where many kinds of swans, geese and ducks swim in the canals and you can see varied bird life in the aviary. A small zoo has animals like deer, porcupines and monkeys.
The 19th century Basilica is worth a visit, especially to enjoy its architecture and historic characteristics. The style of the building is neo-Gothic, a style that is more common in the north of the country than in Limburg. The basilica is one of the most successful examples of Gothic Revival in Limburg. Currently, the basilica is visited daily by pilgrims to give thanks or ask a favour. Housed in a former 19th century school building, Museum, The Domain is a museum of contemporary art and urban history and archaeology. The Contemporary Art Department is mainly focused on international avant-garde photography, video art and crossovers and the Urban History and Archaeology Department concentrates on the anthropological perspective of the region. Cheap flights to Born are a good excuse for history-lovers to visit and discover the many treasures of the region.
Visit the Spa Born, a sauna and beauty complex surrounded by forests for a relaxing session in the Hamaam, an oriental bathing facility. If you are an art-lover, make it a point to visit the annual art market in July; pick and choose from over 30 stalls selling a diverse array of regional art. Book yourself in one of the many hotels in Born to spend a memorable weekend.
