Timber framed house in South Limburg, province of Limburg, Holland
South Limburg (Dutch: Zuid-Limburg) is both a COROP (statistical) region as well as a landstreek (area) of The Netherlands located in the province of Limburg. By the Dutch term landstreek, literally "land area/region" is meant that the area is not an administrative region but an area that displays cohesion with regards to culture and landscape. With regards to South Limburg this deals with its hilly landscape, especially in the Heuvelland region, sunken lanes, an abundance of castles and the regional language Limburgish spoken by a significant part of the population alongside Dutch. The region also contains the highest point above sea level in the Netherlands namely the Vaalserberg being 322,5 m. above sea level; although within the larger Kingdom of the Netherlands the highest point is Mount Scenery, Saba being 877 m. above sea level.
The region South Limburg in addition, although extended a little further north to Roermond, forms a constituent part of the Euroregion Meuse-Rhine.
