Hotel Nimma

Hotel Nimma is a boutique hotel converted from a former office space. Enjoy a drink on the roof terrace, which overlooks the River Waal, and take a short walk to the nearby attractions including vibrant cultural centre, the Honigcomplex. The rooms are filled with character and industrial accents, such as exposed wood, repurposed crates and rustic pendant lights.

Opoe Sientje B&B

There’s no better way to immerse yourself in Nijmegen’s history than by spending a night aboard the Opoe Sientje. The ship, built in 1885, is something in between a B&B and a living museum, offering guests the chance to experience its heritage along with modern luxuries. Original wooden beams, carved bed frames, a copper bath tub and maritime antiques complete the artful decor.


The colourful and eclectic Hotel in-Credible is right in the heart of Nijmegen’s city centre and just a few minutes’ walk from museums, shops and restaurants. The space combines the luxuries of a hotel with the relaxed atmosphere of a hostel, enhanced by quirky design accents and a lively restaurant and bar.

Stay in a traditional ‘Gypsy wag’

Spend the night in a cozy vardo – a traditional horse-drawn ‘Gypsy wagon’, in this case, converted into a static home – for a peaceful escape near the centre of Nijmegen. It has a private bathroom, mini kitchen and terrace for enjoying a cup of coffee surrounded by nature. The wagon makes full use of its compact size and is appointed with all the comforts of home.

Sanadome Hotel & Spa

Treat yourself to a stay at the blissfully relaxing Sanadome Hotel and Spa. The wellness centre has several heated pools that make use of the area’s minarel-rich salt and freshwater springs. A selection of spa treatments are also available to book. The four-star hotel has several on-site restaurants that specialise in local produce and vegan-friendly dishes.
