Valkenburg is located in the province of Limburg, in the South of the Netherlands.
The event itself is located at the top of the famous Cauberg Climb, one of the highest points in the country. The Cauberg is on the south-western side of Valkenburg, heading towards Maastricht, the nearest major town to the event.
Famous for its Christmas Market, as well as its cross of course! The medieval Dutch town of Valkenburg plays host to the 2018 UCI Cyclocross World Championships.
