    A lovely park in Arnhem. Changing landscape. You can here. Picnicking, always something to do. Market, you dog, running, dancing. Last Sunday of the month salsa dancing in the park. It is a beautiful park just walking through it.

Where to stay in Arnhem

Although many visitors to Arnhem end up choosing a centrally located hotel near the main train station, you can find plenty of equally comfortable rooms farther away from this busy part of town. For easy access to the surrounding countryside, check out the guesthouses and self-catering apartments on the outskirts of town, where you can get a quiet night's sleep and take advantage of free parking. Alternatively, visit Arnhem from the nearby city of Nijmegen, which offers a greater variety of mid-range hotels and family-run inns.
