Living in Landgraaf

The municipality of Landgraaf was formed in 1982 from the municipalities of Ubach over Worms, Nieuwenhagen and Schaesberg. After the mining industry disappeared, the former mining sites were transformed into business parks and recreation areas where the Mondo Verde family park and the Pinkpop festival site now stand. Wilhelmina- berg is a special landmark, with SnowWorld, the largest indoor indoor ski slope in Europe, being located on top of this gigantic former spoilheap. If you want a beautiful view of the region, you can climb the Wilhelminaberg via the longest open-air stairway in the Netherlands.

In addition to these attractions, Landgraaf has a wealth of cultural- historical heritage and beautiful nature reserves such as Strijthagerbeek valley and Worm valley. Brunssummerheide and Teverener Heide nature reserves are also within easy reach. Wherever you are in the municipality: schools, shops and other facilities are always close by. All this means that you can live, work and relax in Landgraaf.
