The Arnhem Nijmegen region and the Veluwe offer a wide and varied range of attractions, museums, events and accommodations. In addition to this, the region boasts varied landscapes, castles and (historic) towns and cities.

Arnhem and Nijmegen are two completely different cities complementing each other perfectly. Their past dates back to the period of Roman rule in Nijmegen and ends at a bridge too far in Arnhem. The Arnhem Nijmegen region is associated with history, leafy parks, culture and nature. However… the area is also known for its fashion & design, appealing architecture, culinary highlights, top attractions, health & wellness and the festivities on the occasion of the Four Days’ Marches, an unexpected and exciting range of very contemporary options.

The Veluwe is one of the largest continuous areas of natural beauty in Western Europe. Ede is home to the Kröller-Müller Museum, which houses the second largest collection of Van Gogh paintings in the world. In Apeldoorn lies Paleis Het Loo, the former residence of King-Stadholder William III of England and Queen Mary II of England.

Achterhoek

Zutphen and Doesburg are two Hansa Achterhoek towns on the beautiful River IJssel. The Hansa treaty arose from the collaboration between a number of North German merchants and grew into a powerful economic factor in the 14th and 15th century. Each Hansa town has its own authentic feel and charm! Come shopping in the old streets, sample the cultural heritage amongst monumental buildings and have a bite to eat in one of the many convivial squares.

Rivierenland

As its name suggests, Rivierenland (Land of Rivers) owes its unique landscape to the rivers Maas, Waal, Nederrijn, Lek and Linge. Cycling along and between ‘the big rivers’, is thé way to explore the Betuwe, Bommelerwaard and the Land of Maas and Waal. Orchards in full bloom, charming villages, the vast countryside and hospitable locals are just a few ingredients making Rivierenland so special. There is an extensive cycle route network with cycling junctions. The routes provide the ideal mix of nature, culture and relaxation. The emphasis may vary with each route.
