In the area around Kunrade there have been many temporary exposures of the so-called Kunrade Limestone. The Kunrade Facies is part of the Maastricht Formation and dates from the Maastrichtian. The most important location, the Kunrader Quarry, was closed, but has reopened in 2012 (but at the moment temporarily closed, see this topic for info in Dutch). The former nature reserve is excavated once more, and the owner allows for group or individual visits for a fee. More information can be found at their website.
