B&B De Goffert is the perfect base to explore the area. Noviomagus (Nijmegen) is the oldest city in the Netherlands with of course the famous Valkhof museum, but also with the Orientalis museum and the Muzieum. Click on this link for a short YouTube video. In addition to fun and historic city walks, the natural beauty in the Nijmegen area is also very worthwhile for cyclists and walkers. (see below) Museum Het Valkhof is located at the Kelfkensbos, on the edge of the Valkhof park. Once there was a Roman army camp here, later Emperor Charlemagne had his palace (palace) built there. The Archeology department has a varied collection of archaeological art and utensils from the Prehistory, Roman times and Middle Ages of the city and province. Themes such as religion, death and burial, trade and craft shed light on everyday life. The Ooijpolder is one of the most beautiful river landscapes in the Netherlands and has a wide variety of nature and landscape values: the river with its old river runs, the floodplains, swamp area, forests, fields and meadows. The polder is part of the Gelderse Poort nature development area. Here various organizations, including Staatsbosbeheer, work together to develop nature. The Ooijpolder is a paradise for bird lovers; ± 260 different species have been observed here. The Hatertse and Overasseltse Vennen is a pond area of approximately 520 hectares in the municipalities of Heumen and Wijchen. The area consists of around twenty named fens and the surrounding river dune, heath and forest areas. At the edge of the area is the fifteenth-century ruin of the Sint Walrick Chapel and the adjacent pedunculate oak tree that is revered as the Koortsboom van Overasselt. The area is also popular as a walking and cycling area. (The land of) Maas and Waal is a large island surrounded by the Maas and the Waal. Boudewijn de Groot already sang Het Land van Maas and Waal in the late 1960s; his ode to this beautiful region is still a classic. This fascinating area is considered the most rural in Rivierenland: impressive dikes, relaxing walking and cycling routes and idyllic villages give the region a nostalgic character. People lived here well before our era. From the fourteenth century, dikes were built along the rivers to curb the water. The Spiegelwaal is a side channel of approximately 3 kilometers in the Waal. The channel was constructed between 2013 and 2015 as part of the Room for the Waal project , part of the national flood risk management program. The city island of Veur-Lent was created by the construction of the trench. Two new bridges have also been built between Lent and the city island: the Lentloper and a pedestrian bicycle bridge (Zaligebrug). Photo by Tijs from Leur on Unsplash
