very nice place in the middle of the city where you cab have a spectacular view of the river Waal. And see the remains of the medieval castel of Charleslemagne.
When you walk from the Railway station to the city center and then towards the river Maas, the location of this wonderful park is on the right before the Maas bridge. It's small but a perfect place to relax and enjoy the lush green environment, topped with a nice ruine and a chapel (great look on the river Maas). From... More
