Tourist information

Apart from the rich history of the city, there are other facets that make Nijmegen well worth visiting: from attractive shops, cafes (there are a hundred different types of beer!) and restaurants to unique historic monuments; from a superb view over the busiest river of Europe to such lively traditions as the Street Theatre and the Concert Days; not to mention happenings such as the International Four Days Marches and the International Summer Festival.

You can stroll along the winding streets or go shopping in the city centre. The city has a characteristically intimate atmosphere that can be experienced to advantage at the many outdoor cafes. Not only is the centre of the city one of the liveliest in the Netherlands, there are also abundant cultural facilities: there are nine museums, galleries, a theatre, a concert hall and several cinemas, including an art house cinema.
