Discover Venlo

Venlo is the place to be for agro and food, but the historic city center will also surprise you!

Good food, shopping or culture sniffing … Venlo has a lot to offer!

The medieval city center is full of cozy bars and fine restaurants, from snack bar to haute cuisine. When the sun shines, you can settle down in Julianapark or at the Maas, on one of the squares or the Parade. You get the Mediterranean feeling at the passers-by at the Maaspoort theater, followed by the special Q4 district. On a cultural level you can choose from various cinemas and of course the Limburgs Museum.

Shopping? Go ahead! From Maasboulevard to Lomstraat, all major chains are present and in the small streets such as Klaasstraat and Jodenstraat there are super cute boutiques.
