Why not combine the Dutch Mountain Film Festival with a weekend (or week’s) break in Zuid-Limburg? That way you can see out a day’s walking in the Dutch Mountains with a evening of mountain films. Or would you rather try something a little more adventurous instead? Take part in the Buildering workshop or jump on your bike for the MTB Masterclass or for the Summit-to-Summit Ride.

During the festival ‘mountain lodge’ Natuurvriendenhuis Eikhold in Heerlen offers simple and affordable stay for € 25 person/night. Breakfast € 8.
