Nijmegen, city on the Waal

  8 votes

Nijmegen is a reasonable sized city in the south east of Holland. It has a large university and there are many students living in this city. Nijmegen is the oldest city in Holland. It will soon be celebrating its 1900 year existence. Remains of Roman and mediaeval buildings can still be found at certain sites.
Nijmegen is on the river Waal. One of the busiest rivers of the country.

Favourite spots:
Kronenburger Park: a large park in the city centre.

What's really great:
As all towns in Holland there are many terraces in the city centre in summer. But Nijmegen as an extremely large amount of terrace-chairs compared to other places. On a nice summer afternoon, it's a great way to spend your time watching other people walk by.

Sights:
The surroundings of Nijmegen are very pretty. There are hills and forrests. Many hikingtrails.

Accommodations:
There is no hostel is Nijmegen. But there are some bed and breakfast places and cheap hotels. Like Hotel Catharina.

Restaurants:
Billabong: Australian restaurant
Trocadero: Mexican restaurant
Mr. Jack's: popular among students, cheap and tasty Italian and Greek food
There are a few Chinese/Indonesian restaurants around. Also some Italian pasta and pizza places like, Pinocchio and Donatello's.

Other recommendations:
Every year in the third week of July the biggest marching event of the world takes place in Nijmegen. Soldiers and civilians from all over the world travel to Nijmegen to walk the Four Day Marches. But this event is not all about walking. For seven days and nights the city centre turns into one big party place! Famous Dutch bands perform all around town. Outdoors and for free. It's one crazy week and defenitely worth the experience.
