was almost entirely destroyed during the Second World War, but the city
rose from its ashes and some of the older monuments have been restored.
One of them is the "Eusebiuskerk"
(Eusebius Church) which was originally built in 1560, but almost
entirely destroyed during the war. The tower of the church is now higher
than ever before (93 m). A glass elevator provides the visitor with a
splendid view over the Rhine valley. The so-called "Duivelshuis"
(devil's house) was built in 1545 by Maarten van Rossum and is an
example of Dutch Renaissance style. Also, don't forget to take a
stroll in Arnhem's beautiful
parks, such as :
Sonsbeek (English country style park) and Zypendaal.
The actual Battle of Arnhem took place in
about 8km (5 miles) west of Arnhem. The
Oosterbeek War Cemetery
is the place where the bodies of 1.748 allied soldiers lie. 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
in nearby Grote Hartensteyn ( a former hotel) where the story of the
Battle can be traced.
Art lovers will want to visit the
Museum of Modern Art
or the Historical Museum. 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 Arhem's most famous Armhem/Museums.
