    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    The medium sized east Netherlands town of Arnhem is better known for its past than its presence. Having spent eight days of the Second World War welcoming allied parachutists at the heart of Operation Market Garden. The town has never regained the same notoriety it had for that brief week in 1944. It’s also the sight of ‘A Bridge Too Far’, the spot where British soldiers tried to gain a foothold on the Rhine River, failing despite colossal efforts.

    The Garden of the Rhine has a few of its own modern day draws too, though. Those who like their holiday snaps resplendent with stereotypes will enjoy the impressive De Kroon windmill, while those with environmental leanings will take home ideas stemming from the city’s green-friendly trolley transport and abundance of bicycles. The Otterloo Gallery has an impressive collection of Van Gogh’s, and the Airbourne Museum gives a brief taste of those fateful wartime days, not forgetting to explore the more modern side of airplanes alone the way.

    The Dutch Open Air Museum is an enthralling mix of Dutch history and costume play, focusing on the more ancient aspects of this impressive nation, while you can get another fill of symbolism exploring the city-center gardens, especially when the tulips are in season. Perhaps Arnhem’s best kept secret is the lively nightlife, unexpectedly vibrant for such a small city, especially around the central squares.

    Head out of town and you’ll have the chance to take in Doorwerth Castle (which dates back to medieval times), while slipping across the border into Germany is easily achievable as a daytrip. Above all, though, Arnhem appeals as a small town with a big history and a big heart. If, like many more adventurous travelers, you prefer a taste of the soul of a country rather than a cruise around its more well-known sights, this might well be the perfect spot for you.

    • Harderwijk

      Harderwijk is a municipality and a small city in the eastern Netherlands.

      Harderwijk got the rights of city from count Otto 11 of guelders in 1231. A protective wall around the city was formed by the end of century. The previous part of the city is situated near the streets hongstraat and groteprotraat are situated today. Around 1315 the city was expanded southwards, which included the construction of what is now called the Grote Kerk (Large Church). A second, northward expansion took place around 1425. Particularly along the west side of town much of the wall still exists, although often not in entirely original form. This also goes for the only remaining city gate, the picturesque Vischpoort.

      Harderwijk was a member of the Hanseatic League. It lies on what used to be the Zuider Zee shore (Southern Sea, now the IJsselmeer) and consequently its economy was strongly based on fishing and seafaring in general. This dramatically changed after 1932, when the Zuiderzee was cut off from the North Sea for safety reasons.

      Between 1648 and 1811 the University of Harderwijk operated in the city. Carolus Linnaeus graduated at this university. The university, together with the universities of Zutphen and Franeker was abolished by Napoleon.

      Today, Harderwijk is probably known best for the Dolfinarium, a marine mammal park where dolphin shows are held and various other marine mammals and fish are kept.
