In this cycling tour you’ll be diving right into the twisting streets and hidden alleys of downtown Nijmegen. There’s a wealth of stories to be found and discoveries to be made within the city’s 2000-year-old history. We’ll be starting in the Roman times, after which we’ll ride our bicycles right through times like the medieval period and the period Nijmegen was a fortified city. We’ll visit remains of fortification, and captivating World War II events will be covered. After this visit to the city centre, we’ll clear our heads during a quick bicycle ride using the Snelbinder over the Waal to ‘the island’, where we can really take in the beautiful view of the city. Immerse yourself in the history of the inner city during this tour!
