Gulpen is situated in the beautiful Mesopotamia of the rivers Geul and Gulp, with magnificent settings of wooded and gold-coloured fields on both sides. In addition, Gulpen offers many striking historic monuments.
Gulpen fulfils an important regional function and is the bustling centre of the hilly landscape. There are many special shops and cosy bars and an attractive weekly market on Thursday morning. There are many sports opportunities such as amongst others a subtropical swimming pool, a climbing hall and of course a couple of tennis courts.
There are many beautiful walking trails along forest paths or nice field roads. People who have visited Gulpen, will definitely come back one day!
