Eroica Limburg is a two-day event with fun for the entire family. The festival will open on Friday September 3rd and ends in the evening of Saturday September 4th.
In addition to cycling galore, you'll be able to enjoy a world of culture, music, food and drink at the finish area, the rest stops and along the way. There will be a wide range of exciting things to explore, from performances by local groups and brass bands to delicious regional dishes from the local cuisine. As you would expect, there will be a range of stalls selling retro clothes at the start and finish location. Many cycling heroes from the past will be putting in an appearance to regale participants and visitors with heroic anecdotes from their careers. And of course, they will be bringing their World Championships, Tour or Olympic bicycles and winner's jerseys along with them – a real treat for all cycling enthusiasts.
The food and drink available during Eroica Limburg will be fully in keeping with the spirit of the event, with local products and regional specialities being served from the nostalgic food trucks.
In short: in the first weekend of September, the global cycling hub of Valkenburg is the place to be! There will be a range of different live acts in Valkenburg every day throughout the event. Enjoy the ambiance and music and welcome the heroes who rode their Eroica Limburg that afternoon! Oh, and one more thing: all the activities at the start and finish area can be attended free of charge. Eroica Limburg inspires and is sure to put a smile on your face.
Valkenburg has excellent transport links by car, train or bicycle(!). It's Limburg's number-one tourist hotspot, so parking and accommodation are not a problem. You will find plenty of choice for places to stay on the South Limburg Tourist Office website, vvv.zuidlimburg.nl. Would you like to go camping? The first weekend of July would be an excellent time to rough it in the outdoors. Of course, we're counting on good weather too... Both South Limburg and the Voer region of Flanders have a wide range of campsites where you can pitch a tent or park your camper van.
