In the immediate vicinity of Hotel Lamerichs Berg and Terblijt we find, next to much natural beauty, the Geulhemmergroeve and the cave houses. These cave houses were inhabited until 1931. Residents of these special homes were the block breakers, people who sawed large blocks of marl every day. These block breakers are currently still active, except that the extracted marl is no longer used for construction, but for restoration purposes. The Geulhemmergroeve can only be visited by groups on request.
In addition, there are various activities nearby such as an exhibition location for high-quality, contemporary visual art at Gallery and Giardino Sculpture Garden .
