Welcome to Nijmegen
 

Nijmegen is situated in the east of Holland, close to the German border and has approximately 160,000 inhabitants. It has hilly surroundings and beautiful forests.
The city, with lots of shops, cafees, old buildings and some middle age ruins is well worth visiting. In fact the Romans build one of their settlements out here on the hill and called it Noviomagus.


The University of Nijmegen is one of the leading academic communities in the Netherlands. Renowned for its green campus, modern buildings, and state-of-the-art equipment, it has eight faculties and enrols over 13,000 students in 60 study programmes.

Nijmegen is well known for it's 'Vierdaagse', a four day walking march in the month of July each year, with some 40,000 participants. More Vierdaagse information.

If you are planning to visit Nijmegen, we wish you an enjoyable stay and hope that this website can be of service to you, to help you find the things you need.
