Arnhem (pop. 135 000) called the “Garden City on the Rhine ” is better known to World War II veterans as the city of A Bridge Too Far (British paratroopers tried and failed to gain a foothold across the Rhine there). A unique thing in this so-called Garden city are the trolley busses; they use electricity-wires instead of benzine and are thus very environment-friendly.

While in town see the Dutch Open Air Museum—a collection of buildings and costumes from throughout the Netherlands and take a look at Burger's Zoo as well. This petting zoo is located on the same street as Arnhem's most famous Museums.

Arnhem rates a half-day visit when you want to enjoy the sights near the center but add more time if you want to see the Airborne Museum in nearby Grote Hartensteyn or medieval Doorwerth Castle. Art lovers will want to visit Otterloo and its collection of van Goghs at the Kroller Muller Museum. When you're planning to stay the night in Arnhem it's real good fun to stroll the lively squares, especially the Hotspots full of bars, pubs, cafes, restaurants and big disco's.
