Discover Nijmegen's past on a walk with historians

Thursday 11 May 2023, 11:30 am - 3:30 pm
A Radboud Gesture

As lecturers and researchers at Radboud University, we usually transfer our knowledge about archaeology, history and art to students. However, we also like to tell our stories to a wider audience. And what could be more fun than doing that on location? We like to offer Nijmegen citizens with an interest in history and heritage the opportunity to learn about their city's distant past in an attractive and accessible way. Our guided tour takes you past well-known and lesser-known relics from the Roman and Medieval periods and offers a different view of the city, both literally and figuratively. In this way, we hope to make Nijmegen's history come alive. As scientists, we like to share our knowledge with the inhabitants of Nijmegen. The walk is about 4 kilometres long.  

Start and end times of guided tours: 11.30-12.30, 13.00-14.00 and 14.30-15.30 hrs. 
Location: Starting point Godspijler/Zonnewijzer Kelfkensbos (in front of Museum het Valkhof)
