    Grote of St. Maartenskerk

    Grote of St. Maartenskerk, fifteenth century church - outside the church an outline can be found of the Romanesque church ; there are even remains here of a Roman temple complex, 1st or 2nd century AD (which we did not get to see...)

    Church of Elst, a whole own style

    Historical churchtower of Elst: a beauty!

    The main church of Elst is visible over a far distance from all approaching sides. This because of the flat landscape (riverlands) but also because it's hight and shape are very special. The buildingstyle holds somewhere the middle of romanic and gothic influences, but makes up a wonderful balanced endresult.
    In the second worldwar, after the operation Market Garden was doomed to become a bridge too far, it was from here that the commanders decided to evacuate the remaining soldiers in Oosterbeek.

    Appletree blossom in the gardens of Elst

    In sprintime this area is most beautiful. When all trees are showing of their pretty blossom and their scent is filling the air. Bikingtours are organised along the most beautiful spots and when the first springsun is warming the riverlands, the joy of biking around the blossoming trees is unbeatable and would be the first thing I miss in a foreign place.
