Battle Of Arnhem Bike Tour
During this Battle Of Arnhem Bike Tour one of our skilled local guides will join you for a 4 or 6 hour tour in and around the Arnhem area. Along the hand of photos taken during the Battle of Arnhem and eyewitness stories you will get a good idea of what went on in September 1944 in Arnhem.
Operation Market Garden (17–25 September 1944) was an unsuccessful Allied military operation planned and predominantly led, by the British. It was fought in the Netherlands and Germany in World War II. The success of the operation depended on taking a series of nine bridges, the last being at the city of Arnhem over the Rhine river. Airborne and land forces succeeded in the liberation of the Dutch cities of Eindhoven and Nijmegen, but failed in keeping their farthest positions in and around the city of Arnhem including the bridge over the Rhine.
