One of the largest cities in the Netherlands, Arnhem - on the right bank of the Lower Rhine, just a few kilometers below the point where the IJssel branches off the Rhine - is an ideal spot from which to explore this beautiful little country. Before doing so, be sure to spend at least a day or two visiting Arnhem's many historic sites and attractions. First mentioned around 893 AD, the city occupies the site of the old Roman settlement of Arenacum and, thanks to its advantageous position on the Rhine, has been an important place of trade since the Middle Ages, evidence of which can still be seen throughout Arnhem's old city center. In addition to its many memorials, Arnhem boasts numerous museums and cultural attractions, including the excellent Netherlands Open Air Museum with its displays of traditional lifestyles, and the Hoge Veluwe National Park, one of the country's most important conservation areas and a fun place to explore either on bike or on foot.
