Arnhem (155,000 inhabitants) is situated on the banks of the Rhine on the edge of a beautiful nature reserve in the Eastern Netherlands. The provincial capital rubs shoulders with De Veluwe national park, the biggest nature reserve in the Netherlands. South of the city lies the extensive rivers region. The lively city centre offers fantastic entertainment, with numerous lively terraces along Korenmarkt, and of course, a superb shopping centre.

GelreDome Stadium

The GelreDome is the home of the Arnhem professional football club, Vitesse. It's a special stadium which can quickly be converted into a concert hall: the grass is pushed back and the roof closes. Do you want to see that up close? Then take a tour of the stadium!
