A short visit to Nijmegen – 2019

A morning walk at the bank of the river Waal at Nijmegen in the south of the Netherlands offers you unexpected views: the ruins of ancient times, water haulage and memorials the remind you of World War II: a Bridge too Far.

In honour of the defenders of the Bridge.

In the morning sun the ruins of an old chapel alongside the Waal light up nicely. A relaxing moment.
As depicted in the movie A Bridge too Far during World War II there were heavy battles to conquer the bridge over the Waal at Nijmegen. To honour the defenders of the bridge this memorial was created.
