Living in Venlo

It is known as being ‘Europe’s Greenest City’ because of its commitment to greener policies and promoting the use of renewable energy sources. The city has plenty to offer in terms of attractions and places to visit and expats living in Venlo will be able to explore sights such as the City Hall, which is built in a red brick style and is one of the main landmarks of the city, or the Museum van Bommel van Dam named after Maarten and Reina van Bommel-van Dam who set out to collect modern art following World War II.
