Audrey Hepburn Walking Route Arnhem 8,5 KM
INTRODUCTION TO AUDREY
If you look up ‘Audrey Hepburn’ online, what you might have done, you’ll find a ton of information. About, for example, her acting career, starring in movies like Roman Holiday (1953), Sabrina (1954), The Nun’s Story (1959), Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961), Charade (1963), My Fair Lady (1964) and Wait Until Dark (1967). Earning acting prizes throughout her career, she remains one of only 15 people who have won Academy, Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Award.
Audrey also worked as an ambassador to the United Nations UNICEF.
Her connection to UNICEF started in the 50’s when she narrated two radio shows, re-telling children’s stories of war. She might have recognized those stories because as a child, Audrey also lived in a war zone, in a city called Arnhem (the Netherlands).
AUDREY IN ARNHEM
This route is about that time, when Audrey lived in Arnhem between 1939 and 1945. As a young girl, aged 10 years old, Audrey’s mother Baroness Ella van Heemstra moved the family to Arnhem. She hoped the Netherlands would remain neutral and be spared a German attack. Unfortunately this was not the case.
This route will show you many sights of Arnhem. You’ll walk through the city but also our beautiful city parks Sonsbeek and Zypendaal and see a little bit of the stunning homes in the Burgemeesterswijk (a neighborhood in Arnhem).
You’ll learn fun facts about the city and will read things even people who have lived here for 40 years don’t know.
