“Nice relaxing walk ending with a visit to Valkhof museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

Valkhof is a short walk from the town centre and provides a beautiful view of river waal. There are people there walking their dog. Do visit Valkhof museum which is at the corner of the park. However shame about the lack of English translation at the museum though all the staff spoke very good English and always there to help.

“Small but wonderful park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

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 there you can take a walk along the river Maas or visit the nearby Valkhof museum.

“Nice to relax”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

The park is a nice wide open space in Nijmegen, perfect for a summer day to relax with a beer or have a picnic. It also has a great view over the Waal river!
