FINALLY, after 17 years of breaking down and building up the new railway station in Arnhem will be officially opened on November 19th!
For those that travel by bus and train, this will not go unnoticed. There will be loads of activities for the travelers and admirers of the brand new grand hall and Central bus and railway station. To name a few:
November 5th. Like on many railway stations, you can find a and play a white piano in the main waiting hall. To pass the time while waiting, or just enjoy the nice tunes travelers provide.
November 12th: Jasper van Luijk and Jefta Tanate from Generale Oost have a surprise in store for you. This surprise is a dance performance! They created a dance inspired by the dynamic shapes of the new building. The theme is “travel and movement”. The dance performance will take place at 7.30am, 8.30am, noon, 1.00pm, 5.00pm and 6.00pm.
