Nijmegen is one of the largest student cities in the Netherlands. With 40,000 national and international students, there’s always a party going on somewhere. As in the rest of the Netherlands, most people speak English. If you want to join us, please do so! You can stay at a campsite in the area, a hostel in the city centre or enjoy a more luxurious stay at one of the many hotels. Anything is possible for anyone, from backpackers to young travellers and explorers from the Netherlands, Europe, and the rest of the world! This amazing city will not disappoint you!
Nijmegen is an average medium-sized city, with churches, high-street shops and several hotels. But there’s more to this city than meets the eye. The many events each year, the rich gay history and culture, the green areas around the city (Nijmegen’s back garden) and the Honigcomplex all make Nijmegen the city it is today. Go and see a concert at Doornroosje or in the Goffertpark, or simply chill out at one of the beaches on the city’s island. Take a trip to the Ooijpolder to discover its nature and see the wild horses and cows, go for a swim or have a BBQ with the locals or the many students in Nijmegen. Afterwards, put on your sunglasses and flip-flops and visit one of Nijmegen’s many pavement cafes for food and drinks. To round off a perfect day, why not try out the nightlife?
