    The triangular Grote Markt lies in the center of old Nijmegen. In the square there is a statue of Mariken van Nieumeghen, the chief character in the 15th century mystery play of that name.

  • 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.

  • Devil's House - Duivelshuis

    Arnhem Things to Do

    Only made some pictures of the facade. The house once belonged to Charles II, Duke of Guelders and Count of Zutphen, and afterwards to his field marshal Maarten van Rossum. Today it forms part of the Arnhem town hall. The name 'Devil's House' derives from the satyrs that can be found on the facade.

  • 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...

    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 !

  • 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...

  • Vaassen – Daams’ Mill

    Daams’ mill (Daams Molen) is dating back to the year of 1870 for Derk Poll Jonker. In 1883 he passed the mill on to his brother-in-law Herman Daams. From the beginning it was a flour mill, which changed hands several times. Till 1934 the mill was used, but the same year Daams’Mill fell out of use and became a feed mill, which lasted till 1964.

  • Vaassen - Castle Cannenburgh

    We always like to visit ‘Castle Cannenburgh’ in the village of Vaassen, less than 10 km’s north of Apeldoorn. It is a real old castle, already built in the 15th century by Marshal Marten van Rossem. This classic castle, surrounded by a moat, has still the spirit of a medieval place with its old brick walls.The castle can be vistied and you will be...

  • Winterswijk- Mondriaan and textile

    We did a town walk in Winterswijk (in the most eastern part of the Netherlands). If I had to sum up the walk it will be characterized by two things: ‘Mondriaan’ and ‘textile”.MondriaanThe famous Dutch painter spent a substantial part of his youth in Winterswijk, where his father was teacher at a local school. Here he painted more realistic works...

  • Vorden - Eight Castles Route

    The Eight Castles Route is the first signposted cycle route in the Netherlands and has existed since 1913. It was developed to celebrate 100 years of Kingdom of the Netherlands. The route is well signposted with yellow hexagonal plates. The local tourist office (VVV) has a nice booklet with a description and map of the bike ride. The cycle route...

    ’Afrika Museum’ in Berg en Dal (nearby Nijmegen) was founded in 1954 as a missionary museum, supported by the Congregation of the Holy Spirit, whose members worked (and still work) in Africa. The first exhibition was made up of objects that have been brought in by the priests themselves from Africa during their various mission travelings.Nowadays...

    The Wildenborch is a castle between the villages of Vorden and Lochem. The castle was first mentioned in the year of 1372, when it was owned by the infamous Count Sweder Rodebaert van Wisch, a knight who loved robbing and looting. The Wildenborch (“castle in a wild swamp region”) was surrounded by swamps and was an ideal hideout after raids in the...

  • Apeldoorn - a royal town

    The royal history of Apeldoorn started in the year 1684, when King Stadtholder Willem III bought a castle close to the town (now called "Het Oude Loo"). Soon he considered it as too small and ordered to build a new "Palace Het Loo".Palace Het LooNowadays a National Museum which shows a lot of the history of our royal family and the inhabitants of...

    Although existing more than 10 years and located in a nearby village of our hometown, we never had heard about this garden. On an arts and crafts market we got a leaflet of the (officially called) “Verborgen Tuinen van Bert Loman” and decided for a visit. The garden, which consists of nine smaller gardens, is really hidden behind some ordinary...

  • Staverden - just strolling around the...

    Castle Staverden isn’t a real castle, but more a manor. In popular speech it is still called ‘castle’ because of its history of more than 800 years and the fact that four buildings have been built on this place. The first one was a hunting lodge used by the counts and dukes of Gelre, dating back to 1298. The same year Staverden became city rights -...

  • Nijbroek and its old church

    Nowadays Nijbroek is one of those peaceful and quiet rural villages in the Netherlands. And driving, biking or walking around it is almost unbelievable it ever had city rights and there were plans to make it a real city. Most probably it was cancelled because the city of Deventer was too close to Nijbroek.Nijbroek was a separate municipality until...

  • Middachten Castle – romantic Christmas...

    Castle Middachten was first mentioned in 1190 and originally a reinforced house with moats and thick walls, where the residents could feel relatively safe during attacks. The castle boasts a strategic location between the high Veluwezoom and the low swampland in a loop of the river Ijssel. Castle Middachten has never been sold and has been...

  • Loenen waterfall: the highest of the...

    As Gelderland is rather flat, there are not many waterfalls in streams and rivers in the Netherlands. But not far away of Apeldoorn you will find the ‘Niagara of the Veluwe’. This waterfall in the so called ‘Vrijenbergspreng’ has a fall of 15 metres (in 4 steps). As a matter of fact there is a second waterfall upstream with two steps and about 10...

  • Klein Amsterdam - the other Amsterdam

    Klein Amsterdam means 'Little Amsterdam'. Almost every tourist to the Netherlands will visit Amsterdam, but I think nobody ever has been to 'Klein Amsterdam'. And even my fellow countrymen hardly know where to find 'KA'. So it is rather challenging to visit both Amsterdam and Klein Amsterdam while visting the Netherlands and Gelderland.Although...

  • ‘s Heerenberg - Castle ‘Huis Bergh’

    Just outside the town of ‘s Heerenberg, close to the border with Germany, we found on one of our bike trips through Gelderland Castle ‘Huis Bergh’. This castle is supposed to be one of the biggest and most important castles in my country. Its history goes back to the 13th century; the most important parts of the castle, still existing today, date...

  • Elburg: Zwaluwenburg and A.Vogel Tuinen

    When visiting Elburg I highly recommend a side trip to the ‘Zwaluwenburg’. This is a castle/mansion located nearby the city in a very beautiful setting. The estate offers several ways of exploring its beauty. If in a hurry you could visit the ‘care farm’ Westbroek (Zorgboerderij Westbroek), where you can get a tea or coffee and can do some shopping...

  • Elburg - city walk

    Elburg is a very old fortified city, already built in the 14th century. The city has not changed a bit since then. It is situated between its walls in a square outline with straight narrow streets; the old houses, churches and other buildings are crammed together.We have been several times in Elburg and it is always a pleasure to stroll through the...

  • Bronkhorst, one of the smallest CITIES

    When visiting Bronkhorst almost nobody will say this village is a real city with 'city rights'. In a matter of fact this settlement became these rights already in the year of 1482. The little church at the square even dates from 1344 !!But the 'city' did never increase and has almost the same size as it had in the middle ages. A lot of buildings...

    It was already a long time ago since my last visit to the Apenheul, the primate park in Apeldoorn. I really have to admit that there have been a lot of changes within the Apenheul and I almost did not recognise it. The setting in the middle of the woods of ‘Park Berg en Bos’ is amazing with bamboo bushes, lots of flowers and everywhere small...

  • Apeldoorn - Paleis Het Loo, a must see...

    ‘Paleis Het Loo’ was built in 1686 by Stadtholder William III and used for almost 300 years as a (summer) palace by members of our Royal family. Queen Wilhelmina lived here till the year of 1972. After a huge restoration palace and gardens are back in their original state. Since 1984 ‘Paleis Het Loo’ is a national museum and open for public.Roughly...

  • Zutphen - Librije: a hidden gem

    The ‘Librije’ is a unique 16th century public library in Zutphen and a REAL hidden gem:- it is hardly known by others than citizens of Zutphen- it is more or less hidden as ‘a part’ of the St. Walburga’s Church and even in the church the entrance is through a simple inconspicuous door. The public library was founded as a stronghold against the...

  • Kootwijkerzand - shifting-sand

    This part of the Veluwe has an unique scenery with the biggest shifting-sand area of Europe. Surrounded by forests and just close to the very small village of Kootwijk, it is one of the most remote parts of the Netherlands. Therefore it is such a pity that tourist facilities, like camping sites and holiday parks are coming closer and closer to this...

  • Zaltbommel: more than ‘gutter ghosts’

    Zaltbommel is quite an old city: dating back to 850 AD, at which time it was a small settlement, called “Bomela”. In 1231 the settlement was given municipal rights by Count Otto II van Gelre. The ramparts and fortifications of the town date back to those days.Zaltbommel is located in the province of Gelderland and although I live in the same...

    The Netherlands has quite a lot of fortified cities. Some of them are well known (mostly located in the western part of the country), but there is one which is more or less unknown as such.That is the city of Groenlo in the eastern part of the Netherlands (close to Germany). Groenlo – which has been known through the centuries as Groonloo, Gronlo...

  • Ooijpolder – fascinating Dutch landscape

    Although most of the polders are in the western part of the country, the Ooijpolder (and some other polders) are stretching from Nijmegen till the German town of Emmerich. On one side surrounded by the rivers Waal and Rhine and on the ‘land’ side by the hills of ‘Beek’ and ‘Ubbergen’. We started our biketour at the so called Hollandsch-Duitsch...

  • 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.
