Venlo Overview

Venlo has been inhabited since the Roman Era. It is likely this habitation started and stayed here because this place was an important crossing of roads and a crossing of the river Maas.

In the Middle Ages Venlo was an important trading town at the river Maas, in the 17th and 18th century the town was occupied first by the Spanish, then the French. The town was severely damaged in the Second World War because the front line led right through the town’s centre for a couple of months.

Today, Venlo is a trading-, expedition and industry town. The city is a centre for a vast region, including the German Ruhr Area. Venlo is directly situated at the German border.

Every year during the carnaval you have some major events that attracts many people. It's one of the best places to participate with the northern European carnaval.

In 2013 the city won an award for best citycentre of the Netherlands.
