We stopped for an hour or so in Nijmegen to wonder the old town streets and visit the market square. The cobbled streets near to Kronenburgerpark are lined with shops and bars making this particular area quite attractive. It doesn’t take long to see everything here, though.

This cobbled street is very old and has lots of independent shops and cafes, something for everyone. It is lovely to walk along and the weather wasn't too bad weather for our first visit to the town. Hopefully not our last

This oldest street in Netherlands is pretty and pedestrian friendly street. Not only shops for both sides but also street shops are in the middle of the street and fun to look around. I started from St. Stephen’s church and ended at the Valkhof park.

When in Nijmegen, you must walk along the cobblestoned street, Lange Hazelstraat, the oldest street I. Anijmegen. It is lined with boutique shops, cafes, and cheese shops. If it is sunny, sit outside one of the cafes and enjoy a cup of coffee and watch the people and dogs stroll by. Look up and you will see the steeple of Stevenskerk and hopefully hear the bells chime. If the line isn’t too long, pick up some delicious cheese at De Wit Cheese Shop. Meander up the street into the Grote Markt. If it is Saturday or Monday, you will enjoy the Open Market filled with fruit and vegetable stands, fish markets, cheese, sausage and olive markets as well as bakeries. Be sure to look up at the beautiful, old buildings and architecture as you walk along.

This street has the original feel of old pre-war Nijmegen. The city centre had been bombed and most of it had been rebuilt in post war modernism. This street has a lot of small ( family ) shops, restaurants and cafes. So far the big chains haven t taken over.

A shopping street not (yet) dominated by 'established' brands and chainstores. A relief after visiting so many places in the Netherlands or even Europe that increasingly look alike. Special shops showing the country still has individual entrepreneurs. Also some pleasant places to eat or drink. Last, but not least: no cars or other motorized traffic.

Perhaps not so important: is this really the oldest shopping street in the country? Beginning 19th century Nijmegen had only 10,000 inhabitants. Historians can not substantiate a link with 'shops' or even a marketplace in the 1st century during Roman times.

As the title says there really is everything for everyone, butchers, jewelers, clothes shops, cafes to say the least.
My favourate shop is the second hand/ antique shop ieder z'n vaak= everyone's profession. Within the shop are dozens and dozens of shelves, each shelf belongs to some one who fills the shelf with whatever they feel fit to sell i.e. Chocolates or antiquities, pots and pans or even gramma fone players to list just a few.
My only complaint about this street is the damage it does to one shoes. The street is paved with flat headed cobble stones with nothin in between so you shoe tips can be damaged as you walk so wear sensible 👠

This is the oldest shopping street in the Netherlands. It is a nice street with all kind of shops, cafes, a super market and restaurants. There are some specific shops such as "Silverado" Western store, "Rob & Elly Vinyl Archief" second hand record store, "De Gaper" drugstore with old symbol of a drugstore etc.

There are some interesting shops in this street, nice boutique ones rather than the big conglomerates.
