The fortified city of Nijmegen, Holland’s oldest city, will make you think you’ve gone back to Roman times. The city is full of magnificent historic buildings and centuries-old plazas, and is home to Holland’s oldest shopping street, the Lange Hezelstraat.
Nijmegen, convivial and friendly, is absolutely worth a visit. Not only have the Romans left visible traces everywhere from back when Nijmegen was one of their administrative and economic centres, but the city is also positively crowded with lively squares, parks and shopping streets and innumerable pleasant cafés and restaurants. Visit St. Eusebius’ Church, or amble through the beautiful gardens of Middachten: Nijmegen is simply gorgeous!
