Friendly and comfortable house in Arnhem, Netherlands

Our house is a comfortable, practical and friendly house at the North border of the city of Arnhem and yet it's close to the centre. It's an early example (late 1950's) of a typical Dutch 'rijtjeshuis', in the middle of a block of six houses, with a garden in front and at the back.The natural environment is less typically Dutch, it's relatively hilly and amongst others known for the beautiful nature on the Veluwe closeby. There are four bedrooms, the bathroom contains a bath and seperate shower. Also, there is wifi and ofcourse we have bicycles available.

Our Neighbourhood

  • forest Park Klarenbeek (0.8 km)
  • shopping Shopping Centre Geitenkamp (1.0 km)

Arnhem is in the middle of the Netherlands and has a population of plm.150.000 inhabitants. Our neighbourhood is quiet and at the highest point of town. We live at the North-border of the city and yet the centre is not far away and easy to reach. At the end of our street you have a wonderful view over the city and when the weather is clear you can see Germany. Arnhem has been elected the greenest city of the Netherlands in 2008 and of Europe in 2009. There are many parks and during the summer there are several (outdoor) festivals. A big Zoo is nearby, as are several museums, like the lively Netherlands Openair Museum, the Museum of Modern Art Arnhem and the Kröller Muller Museum, with a large collection of van Goghs and its beautiful sculpture garden.There is a public indoor swimming pool around the corner, a public outdoor swimming pool at 10-15 minutes walking distance and a small playground for young children across the street. A small shopping centre is at a distance of plm. 1 km. and larger shopping centres are a bit further away. National Park 'De Hoge Veluwe' is the largest national park of the country and only ten minutes driving. The neighbourhood is close to highways, it's 20 minutes driving to Germany and an hour to Amsterdam. Trainconnections are very good.
