Back toHeerlen's Colors of History

Parkstad door de tijden heen

You can find the starting point of your Heerlen experience in the corner of the square, at no. 40. 

If opening times* are favorable to you, you should definitely start your tour with this ingenious introduction movie of the region through the ages. Beautifully produced, you can watch this 20 min. video for free on the first floor of the Visit Zuid-Limburg Experience Center.  

Make sure to take a look around in the store itself as well, with local products, countless brochures of magnificent walking and cycling routes, and don't forget to leave your own digital graffiti artwork behind! 

*Mon: 13.00–17.00 / Tue-Fri: 10.00–17.00 / Sat: 10.00–16.00 / Sun: closed

To continue your experience, walk pass the entrance of the train station and continue walking with the building facade on your left hand side. You will pass the park-like Maanplein and it's Heliostaat (about which we will tell you more later). At the far end of the building, take the stairs down and follow the path with the railway track still on your left hand side.
