An Afternoon in Venlo, the Netherlands

An Afternoon in Venlo, the Netherlands, Venlo, Netherlands (B)

Venlo is a pretty, little town in the Netherlands near the German border. I visited Venlo in November (2021). When I planned my sojourn at my best friend’s in Düsseldorf (Germany) I’d wanted to include a short outing to the Netherlands. I actually flew to Weeze airport which is even closer to the Dutch border than Düsseldorf so the idea was to go somewhere in the Netherlands on my way back to the airport. My best friend M. and I discussed several options and settled on Venlo. You see, I just wanted to spend a few hours in a Dutch town because it’d be a shame to miss this opportunity, of being able to spend some time in two countries after a long time without travelling. I will explore Amsterdam and other cities in the Netherlands (hopefully!) one day in the future.

We arrived to Venlo on a Tuesday afternoon. It was raining cats and dogs on our way from Düsseldorf but as soon as we approached Venlo the sky cleared up and we were able to walk around Venlo without umbrellas. We parked at a supermarket’s car park and the first thing I saw was a stall selling Dutch cheese and eggs and other fresh produce. Stereotypical or not but it was a great introduction to the Dutch town of Venlo. I only had hand luggage so buying cheese or much else was out of the question. I did buy a couple of postcards though. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
