2 hours private walking tour Nijmegen by art historian and professionally trained private guide (1-15 people)


Nijmegen is a beautiful city with a long history. Here you can enjoy remains of the romans, art of the middle ages up to modern times, for example stories about World War II. Nijmegen is the city of the 10th Roman Legion, Charles the Great, Catharina van Kleef, Gebroeders van Limburg (Les tres riches heures du Duc de Berry), Peter Canisius, Jan and Charley Toorop and Joris Ivens and many more!

Come and enjoy! Private walking tour by art historian and private guide.

PLEASE NOTE: all my tours are CUSTOM MADE. We can add more hours, private transportation, extra places to visit (like the Valkhof Museum or go into the countryside to Groesbeek, Arnhem, Kroller Muller Museum in the National Park, even into Germany closeby), whatever you would like to see, eat, or do. Please tell me your preferences and I'll prepare the perfect tour for you.

A Recent Review of this tour

What a wonderful experience! Walda was professional and knowledgeable and designed a tour specific to our family. She helped us visit places we had frequented 45 years ago when we lived in Nijmegen, and she provided fascinating historical information as we toured City Centre. She was flexible as well: When we learned we could eat lunch in Germany, fulfilling one family member's wishes, Walda easily found a lunch spot for us and translated for the servers. Our tour was special and memorable.
