As part of the international “Night of the Bat” you can attend a special ‘bat-walk’ (Dutch) in Park Sonsbeek where many dozens of bats daily fly.
The walk is led by guides from the Bat Workgroup Gelderland. They use a “bat detector” to hear the ultrasonic navigation sounds and tell a lot of fun facts about these flying mammals. The walk is suitable for children from 9 years and adults. Unfortunately, the walk is not suitable for wheelchair users. Registration is required, after registration, the starting location will be communicated to you.
Note: Maximum 30 participants

25/8 Sur La Route
During this cultural day writers recite from their own work in the beautiful garden of Presikhaaf. They create their personal space and will treat visitors with beautiful (Dutch) words.
In addition to these words, there are a number of art exhibitions to be admired by visual artists. Meet these fantastic people, because they are happy to tell you about their creations.
Also expect music, dance and theater. Of course this is not all, because much more will happen. But we do not reveal that yet.
Come and experience it yourself and be surprised by these lovely artistic people….

26/8 Harvest Market
On Sunday 26 August, the Park ‘de Steenen Camer’ in Arnhem-south will be the cosy setting for the annual harvest market from 12:00 to 17:00. At about 45 stalls you will learn everything about organic products, gardening, nature and a sustainable environment. Organic plants and harvest products are also for sale. Access and parking is completely free. The gardeners of BTV-Elderveld present their harvest in nicely made wheelbarrows or baskets on show tables. In the orchard you can adopt a fruit tree. Children can make selfies with real Roman soldiers or play Roman children’s games. Scouting Schutgraaf does exciting things for the youth.
