What to see in Nijmegen

Nijmegen, the Netherlands' oldest city, harmoniously marries history and youthful energy. Its ancient streets and historic charm coexist with a vibrant, modern atmosphere, thanks to a bustling student community. Visitors can explore Roman relics, wander scenic parks and immerse themselves in a dynamic cultural scene, all within this captivating city.

Nijmegen itself holds a treasure trove of historical and cultural attractions, and one of the highlights is its rich Roman heritage. Begin your exploration with a visit to Valkhof Hill, a prominent elevated area overlooking the city. Here, you'll find the ruins of a Roman military camp dating back to the 1st century AD. Wander among the ancient foundations and imagine the bustling life of Roman soldiers who once occupied this strategic site. The hill also houses the Valkhof Museum, which features a fascinating collection of Roman artefacts, medieval sculptures and contemporary art. The museum offers insights into Nijmegen's layered history.

Venturing beyond Nijmegen's urban landscape, you'll discover the serene and picturesque Ooijpolder and the Duffelt, two scenic regions offering a peaceful escape into nature. Located just east of Nijmegen, the Ooijpolder is a vast and stunning floodplain along the River Waal. This tranquil area is a haven for nature enthusiasts and birdwatchers. You can explore its extensive network of walking and cycling paths that wind through lush meadows, wetlands and riverbanks. Keep an eye out for a diverse array of bird species, including herons, kingfishers and geese. The Ooijpolder's serene ambience and breathtaking landscapes make it an ideal spot for leisurely picnics and relaxation.

A short drive southeast of Nijmegen takes you to Groesbeek, a charming village renowned for its wine production and significant role in World War II history. Groesbeek boasts the unique distinction of being one of the Netherlands' prime wine regions. The gentle slopes of the Groesbeek Hills provide an ideal terroir for grape cultivation. Several local vineyards and wineries offer guided tours and tastings, providing an opportunity to sample Dutch wines and learn about the winemaking process. Savour the flavours of quality red and white wines while enjoying the picturesque vineyard landscapes.
