Nijmegen and around
WELCOME TO NIJMEGEN !
Anyone driving across the bridge into the centre of Nijmegen will understand why its 160.000 citizens are so proud of their city: the waterfront set against the backdrop of the city centre is a splendid sight. Past and present go hand in hand; historic buildings are interspersed with fine examples of modern architecture.
Nijmegen, the oldest city in the Netherlands, is situated on a range of hills near the river Waal. The city has attracted people since its very foundation. The surrounding area features hills, woods and polders, creating a varied countryside offering a range of recreational opportunities to both citizens and tourists.
The address for general information about the city and tourist activities is the VVV for Nijmegen/Arnhem.
