This little hill sits just above the Markt and is next to the Museum Valkhof. Within the park are the Sts. Nicolaaskapel and Maartenskapel, and the St. Stevenskerk and town hall are nearby, so you can visit them all in an afternoon.

Small park near the city centre of the 2000 year old city called Nijmegen. This place is full of history and in the summer there are also a lot of open air concerts here.

Get a bike around the city center, get to the river then to this park. Nothing fancy, but cute. Good restaurants around it.

A beautiful park on top of a hill with marvelous vieuws on the river Waal. The park is often used for popular events( concerts, skatingrink etc) It boasts several old buildings which used to be part of the Valkhofcastle. Don't miss it

Beautiful park and incredible to see the ruins of the old buildings. We were lucky enough to see inside the one building as a film crew were filming!

Very suggestive place! It takes you back to nature, and the Middle Ages ;) Many events are placed here in Nijmegen, not by chance!

A small little park with an impressive ruin standing in the middle of it. There is some benches overlooking the riverside of the city. A nice place for a little rest on your explorations of Nijmegen, only about 5 minutes away from the town centre.

There are a number of Parks in Nijmegen but Valkhof is one of the most stunning. If you visit Nijmegen its definitely worth it to visit this area of Nijmegen. As you climb up the rings of the park you end up at a little tower with a beautiful view of the Waal and the famous bridge that runs across... More

Important historic site. Goes way back to the Roman Empire about 2000 years ago. The view over the river and partly over city is beautiful. Just being in the middle of the city it amazes me how quiet this small park can be. Lots of trees are protecting from heavy sunshine. A "cool" place to visit.
