Major Cities

Surnamed the 'Garden City on the Rhine,' Arnhem is the capital city of the province of Gelderland in east Netherlands. The main attraction is Burgers' Zoo - the biggest and most-visited zoo in the Netherlands, featuring an underwater walkthrough, desert, mangrove, rainforest, etc. Don't miss the National Heritage Museum - an open air museum and park with antique houses, farms, and factories from different parts of the Netherlands. Nearby Arnhem, in Grote Hartensteyn, you can visit the Airborne Museum or medieval Doorwerth Castle.

Dating back from the 1st century BC, when the Romans built a military camp here, Nijmegen is the oldest city in the Netherlands. Past and present blend harmoniously in this city, historic buildings are interspersed with fine examples of modern architecture. Its main sight, the largely demolished Valkhof, is medieval. The Carolingian Chapel was built after Charlemagne's Palatine Chapel in Aachen (Germany) as a symbol of the importance of this city as one of the principal seats of the administration of the Holy Roman Empire. Other sites are the weighing house and St. Stephen's church.

Apeldoorn is known as the favorite country-seat of the royal family of the Netherlands called the palace Het Loo, which reflects the historical ties between the House of Orange-Nassau and the Netherlands. The palace was built in the 17th century for William III of Orange. Another attraction is the 'Apenheul' primate park housing over 35 species of monkeys, apes and lemurs. Apeldoorn is surrounded by beautiful woods which are very suitable for a nice walk or cycle tour. For the youngsters there's the Julianatoren attraction park.

Oosterbeek is a small village where you can taste the Dutch country life, and enjoy its natural beauty. The village still retains a distinctly bourgeois atmosphere with its leafy-green parks and elegant villas dating back to the 19th century when the wealthy had country homes built here. The oldest part of the village of Oosterbeek is the Benedendorp (Lower Village), on the northern bank of the Rhine. Parts of the church now known as the Hervormde Kerk (Reformed Church) date back to the second half of the 10th century.

Zutphen is a small, but very modern city. The old center with brick houses from the 16th-17th centuries survived the war almost entirely. The main sight is the Grote Kerk, or St Walburgis, which dates from the 12th century and contains monuments of the former counts of Zutphen and a fine modern monument to the Van Heeckeren family. A unique attraction of the city is Librije, a beautifully preserved 16th century library of manuscripts on chain, built-on the the Walburg Church. Another eye-catching defense is the Berkel Ruin.
