Description   

Limbourg (Lion’s Castle), now an ancient and picturesque town, once was the capital of the duchy Limburg. It is the cradle of the ancient family of that name from which sprang the Luxemburg family and several emperors of Germany.

The core of the town is on top of a small mountain ridge, 75 m above the Vesdre-Valley, looking down upon Dolhain. The ramparts are still protecting the gothic church of St. George and the houses built with stones from the local quarry around a rectangular marketplace paved with stones polished by the near Vesdre.

To find the best access you should follow the signs “Limbourg ville historique”.

Park your car at N 50° 36,735’ E 005° 56,413’.

After a pleasant walk through the nice old village Limbourg we've found the cache without problems. Thanks to Captain Cook for another fine cache in Belgium.
