House #104: Valkenburg aan de Geul train station
To celebrate our birthday, we release a new house on 7 October each year. In 2023, we created a miniature Valkenburg aan de Geul train station for our 104th birthday.
This castle-like building was designed by the architect Jacob Enschedé in the style of the early English neo-Gothic and was constructed from Limburg marl. It was first used on 23 October 1853 - almost 170 years ago - along the first international train connection between Maastricht and Aachen. The town of Valkenburg aan de Geul is a tourist attraction, and its station was voted one of the most appreciated stations in the Netherlands last year. We chose this station partly because of the vital role that the train continues to play in the accessibility of the Netherlands. KLM wants to use the train more often in combination with air travel.
