    Acquoy

    by OlafS Updated Nov 4, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Acquoy is a tiny village with a tiny church. There is little that reminds of the time that it was a barony. That's long ago, and baron of Acquoy, or better: baroness, is nothing more than one of the many titles of the queen.

    The village is nice, with cute old houses standing on a dyke and orchards wherever you look. In Spring this must be a lovely place. The most important sight however is the tower of the church. If you want to see a leaning tower and don't want to go to Pisa, here is one. It was built so badly that it was never finished. The original church was destroyed in a storm in 1674.

    Nijmegen

    by OlafS Written Nov 2, 2004

    Nijmegen is the oldest city of The Netherlands (and NOT the oldest of Holland, as some people will suggest), but unfortunately proof of this can only be seen in a museum. War and post-war reconstruction have taken a huge toll of the city, but there are a few very nice spots, like the Valkenbergpark, where you can see the remnants of German emperor Barbarossa's castle.

    Arnhem

    by OlafS Written Nov 2, 2004

    The provincial capital is well known world wide for the battle that took place here in September 1944. During the war much of the town was destroyed, and reconstruction afterwards resulted in some really ugly buildings. See my page about Arnhem to see what I have to say about it.

    Tiel

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My birthplace. Perhaps quite a boring place if you have to live there for your entire life, but I escaped when I was 20 and therefore I still like it. Much of the town was destroyed in the closing months of World War Two, but there are still a few old buildings left, like the church of St. Maarten. You'll also find a museum here about the fruit processing industry that once was very important here.

    Harderwijk

    Most tourists who visit this town come for the Dolfinarium, a "zoo" with sea animals only. Nice, but I couldn't spent a whole day there. Thankfully the town itself is quite nice too. Old city walls and gates, churches and houses; everyone who likes old places will enjoy this one.

    This is a restored 15 Century old house where the '' Mayor of Arnhem '' used to live ,and the name of the Mayor was '' Bernt van de Presickhaeve ''(what a name eh).
    The house has been restored several times and has been used as a coffee house before.

    In this picture you see a good example how old and new goes hand in hand ,on the left there is part of the old City Hall building and in the center the new and modern City Hall building ,and on the right
    there is the St -Walburgis Church.
    An interesting thing to see how old and new can go together.

    The '' Grote Kerk '' or St .Eusebius Church .

    by Waalewiener Written Dec 28, 2003

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a must see church to visit if you are in Arnhem , the inside of this church is incredible beautiful,and there is an elevator that brings you to an area where you can have a view far away and you can see as far as the City Nijmegen ,the river Rhine, and I believe on a clear day as far as Germany .

    The Music Concerthall in Arnhem Gelderland.

    by Waalewiener Updated Dec 28, 2003

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The '' Musis Sacrum '' is the music centre in the City of Arnhem and has been for almost a 150 years.The " Gelders Concert Orchestra ''has been performing here over a hundred years. The "' Musis Sacrum ''
    The big Concerthal has 950 chairs in the main Hall and 500 chairs in several smaller halls where different events take place.
    200 meter from this building is an other building called '' het Schouwburg '' which is some what smaller ,but this building also 100 years in existence is more like a Theather.
    Together these two buildings have become an great centre for Festivals etc.
    They are the heart of the music and culture of the City Arnhem. In the ''Musis Sacrum '' building is also a cafe -restaurant called
    '' de derde van Mahler ''.

    This is one of the Churches in Gelderland.

    by Waalewiener Updated Dec 28, 2003

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This Church is named St - Walburgis
    and it has two towers in front which is pretty rare for a Church in the Netherlands.
    After the reformation in 1578 the Church was used as an Arsenal and a Prison.
    In 1808 the church returned in Catholic hands ,a bad restoration job was done between 1851-1854,and the northern Tower collapsed ,in 1855 the Towers were rebuild and given new spires.In September 1944 during the battle of Arnhem the southern Tower was damaged ,but in 1947 till 1951 the Towers were restored and the church was repaired to the state it was in the 14 th century ,but the choir stayed in origional shape.

    A small town, but old and well-preserved. I cannot recommend it enough, more than any of the big cities in this province, except for Zutphen. See my seperate page!
