Battle of Arnhem City Walk 4KM
During the Battle of Arnhem city walk one of our local guides will show you locations that played an importent part during the Battle of Arnhem, that was part of Operation Market Garden.
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.
One of our ArnhemLife guides will lead you to the most important locations of the Battle of Arnhem / liberation route with the final destination the John Frost Bridge. He’ll share eyewitness stories and with the help of photos taken during the Battle of Arnhem make the story come to life. The tour will end near the John Frost bridge.
You will walk about 1,5 km towards Oosterbeek and from there on you’ll walk back to the city via a different route, about 3,5 to the John Frost bridge.
