Welcome to Nijmegen, the oldest city in the Netherlands
In Nijmegen, past and present are intertwined. You can experience it for yourself. Like the Romans, high up in Valkhofpark you can admire the Dutch river landscape stretching out before you.
Admire too the old buildings on the Grote Markt, the historic chapel combined with modern architecture on the Marienburg (see photo), or stroll down the Waalkade along Europe's busiest waterway. Discover Roman finds and modern art side by side in Museum Het Valkhof. Visit extraordinary boutiques in historic buildings and trendy shops in the modern two storey Marikenstraat.
Nijmegen offers something for everyone!
