In the Arnhem and Nijmegen region, there are endless possibilities in all areas. From a hilly area you are in a short time in the middle of the beautiful floodplains or in an idyllic fens area. A few moments later you suddenly walk in the middle of a beautiful, green urban environment.
Located on a ridge on the banks of the river Waal, Nijmegen has been attracting people for centuries.
In Nijmegen the past, present and future go hand in hand. Nijmegen is a real student and tourist city. Visitors love the city center. The range of shops is varied and of good quality, with its modern shopping centers and cozy shops. Nijmegen was declared the city in 2009 with the most diverse range of shops.
Did you know that Nijmegen has the largest 'terrace density' per inhabitant of the Netherlands?
Fans of shopping or going out in Arnhem will get their money's worth. Arnhem was not for nothing 'Best City Center of the Netherlands' and City of Events of the Year 2009. The scenic location and the presence of many parks makes Arnhem a unique city.
Arnheim Fashion, Dutch Open Air Museum, Burgers' Zoo, People of the Labyrinths, Museum of Modern Art Arnhem, Dutch Water Museum and ArtEZ Institute of the Arts have their origins in Arnhem, but also high-profile events such as the Arnhem Fashion Biennale, the Fairy Tale Festival and World Statues.
