Heerlen is located in the southeastern part of the province of Limburg. In the first half of the 20th century Heerlen was the center of a large coal mining area, but since the end of the 1960s there is a shift towards servicing activities, as well as a knowledge center. The history of Heerlen goes back to the Roman era, when the city was known as "Coriovallum." Nowadays the city is the center of a larger urban area called "ParkStad."
