  • Burgers Zoo

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Arnhem Things to Do

    It's a very nice place to spend a day. On one and the same day you can “visit” Africa, Safari, Desert and Ocean. The animals here are kept like in the real nature. I liked a set of cafes located in beautiful places of the Zoo. Sitting in a cafe is a great way to enjoy a beautiful view and wild animals.

    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...

  • Airborne Museum

    Arnhem Things to Do

    A visit to this famous museum based on the momentous events of the doomed Operation Market Garden during nine days from 17 - 25 September 1944 is a must for anyone with the slightest interest in history and specially in the history of WW2. You may have seen the film "A Bridge Too Far" or read books about it but this is where the real action took...

  • National Liberation Museum

    Nijmegen Things to Do

    Really interesting museum commemorating Holland's occupation and subsequent liberation during WW2. Groesbeek was the site of part of Operation Market Garden. American airborne troops dropped here and captured key bridges around Nijmegen. In the museum are books containing the names of Allied soldiers who were killed in Holland. Very poignant !

  • Devil's House - Duivelshuis

    Arnhem Things to Do

    Mysterious and a gloomy building named Duivelshuis or “Devil’s House”. The basement of this building served as temporary prison for captured British parachutists during Oparation Market Garden in September 1944. A German MG team was also positioned here. Today, there are still bullet holes in the building.

    Arnhem Things to Do

    The tower of this church is visible from everywhere in the city. if to rise on the lift by a survey platform it's possible to see how Arnhem is beautiful . when I was in Arnhem the church was restored and the photo with a townscape doesn't show all beauty of a look.

  • Kroller Muller Museum

    Arnhem Things to Do

    This was one of the most unforgettable moments of my 5 months so far here in the Netherlands. After a long confusing bus ride to Hoge Veluwe, visitors can purchase an entrance fee to the museum and use of the many white bicycles to pedal to the museum. The Van Goghs are then appreciated in an aspect much more awe-some having seen some of natures...

    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!

  • Acquoy

    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...

  • Nijmegen

    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...

  • Arnhem

    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

    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...

  • 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.

  • Buren

    Buren is a small town where progress seems to have come to a standstill in the 18th century. Everything here is old. See my seperate page for more.

    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 .
