Made a beautiful walk around Valkenburg today, ending with a visit to the castle ruins.

Valkenburg, Old Jewish Cemetery

Underneath the outer wall on the hillside is the old Jewish cemetery of Valkenburg. In the image is the gravestone of Maximiliaan Bachrach, ca 1881- 08-10-1894. There is one other visible grave. There are other graves as it has been in use from 1792-1925, but the ground is ever shifting, due to the caves below the hill, so other graves likely have sunken into the ground over time.
