Nijmegen is a university town that is popular with students and tourists. Visitors love the city centre because of its combination of attractive pavement cafés and restaurants as well as its entertainment, modern shopping centres and charming boutiques. Everything is within walking distance and the city is a great example of how well old and new can combine. One minute you will be buying clothes in the oldest shopping street of the Netherlands, and the next you will be moving on to a trendy lounge café for a drink or visiting one of the hip and happening festivals. Alterna-tively, you might choose to sit outside oneof the many restaurants on the Waalkade
and enjoy the fantastic views overlooking the river.
