Venlo, in the south-eastern Holland province of Limburg, is situated close to the border of Germany and is home to a number of allurements for tourists arriving by the many cheap flights to Venlo via Weeze in Germany that is just 35 km away. Alternatively, Venlo can also be approached from Düsseldorf, Maastricht, and Eindhoven, all of which have international airports.
If your family has children, your first stop is very likely to be the Hagerhof children's farm where kids can play with a large variety of animals and run around to see some of the larger animals, the colourful duck pond, the buzzing beehives and playground. You also then take them to Balloring Venlo, a 4000 sq. m. playground on the outskirts that not only has an incredible array of attractions but an equally extensive range of food and drinks to keep everybody engaged. If you have ever hankered to go quad biking or learning how to control your automobile safely, you will find a session at the Drive Sensation on various vehicles and terrains under the guidance of experts immensely helpful.
After your share of fun and frolic, proceed to the De Maaspoort Theatre in the city’s heart that offers a diverse entertainment program – cabaret, dance, dramatic and musical performances.
