Mergelgrotten: Noordelijk Gangenstelsel

During the Second World War, these caves contained the painting by Rembrandt: The Nightwatch. You can also see there a lot of graffiti and amusing low-reliefs like that of the Mosasaurus, a prehistoric animal whose head was found in the caves in 1780 (Mosa: Maas).
