    Nijmegen, city on the river "Waal"

    by Pavlik_NL Written Nov 15, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    River

    Entering The Netherlands at Lobith, the mighty river Rhine splits into two, later more, streams. The Nederrijn (Lower Rhine) goes first North to run along Arnhem Westwards to sea, the main stream (most water) however changes name into "Waal" and slides along Nijmegen. The riverlands stretch out on both sides of the river, though near Nijmegen the hills around Beek-Ubbergen and the city itself, drop down quite steep to water level. From Nijmegen various boattrips are possible.

    St Stevenskerk

    St Stevenskerk
    1 more image

    The building of the Grote Kerk or St Stevenskerk began around 1260, and the first tower was built in 1307 and complete by around 1560.

    This gothic church stands on a hill overlooking the Waal river. Beside the church is a square tower with an octagonal belfry and an 18th century carillon.

    The tower and the facade of the church were rebuilt after suffering severe damage during the Second World War; the interior of the church was restored in 1969.

    They are so delicous yammy!
    Nature, walking, fun, food and drinks for any age.
    Also there is a great museum in the neighbourhood.

    De Ooypolder.

    This is a picture from De Ooypolder, a place east of Nijmegen. A beautifull place to walk or for a bike ride where you can enjoy the wide open views and the different birds, ducks and goose's.This is a place where you can hear the sound of silence.
    There is an old inn named Oortjeshekken where you can stay for the night and drink and eat something.

    Houses from Benin

    Afrika Museum

    A little of Africa in Holland learn all about different african cultures. If you can't afford or are afraid to visit Africa, get to know it through this museum.

    The museum is just outside Nijmegen in a town called Berg en Dal or in english: "Mountain and Valley".

    Berg en dal has almost grown together with Nijmegen.

    Visit Grave, a picturesque fortified town on the Maas river, not far from Nijmegen.
    Take your bike for a tour along the river, the villages and towns.

    Walking the streets in Nijmegen

    Nijmegen architecture, Holland

    Since we did not have much time, we decided not to look for the attractions, the museums, the parks or national treasures. Just to "wander" the streets for a short time. This is some of what we saw.
