About this image

Limburg is the southern most province of Netherlands. Its capital is Maastricht. It is the one and only province in the Netherlands which has hills. It also is a very old province; the capital-city, Maastricht, is over 2000 years old. Also, the Limburgish people do not speak Dutch, but they speak their own dialects. These dialects - especially the ones in the South of Limburg - are famous, because the normal Dutch people find it difficult to understand. These dialects have many influences from German and French. The Limburgish are renowned for their famous vlaai.

Limburger cheese comes from this region.
