In the southern part of Holland, Valkenburg is only a two hour drive to Amsterdam. Located at the top of the Cauberg mountain, one of the most beautiful spots in South Limburg, sits the Holland Casino property. The circular tournament room hosts 25 poker tables overlooking breath-taking views of the Southern Holland landscape. Away from the poker tables the property hosts a high class restaurant and bar for players to enjoy. Action away from the tournament floor includes both NLH and PLO cash games with rates from €2/2 to 5/5 (10% rake capped at €10) and €5/5 & above (5% rake capped at €20).
With its proximity close to both the German and Belgium borders the Holland Casino in Valkenburg is also less than a two hour drive from Brussels and Dusseldorf.
