Fun for kids

There are plenty of things to entertain children in the Nijmegen region. Museums and amenities often offer special hands-on activities. Our tips? The Archeolab at Valkhof Museum! Here, children can build their own Roman bridges or fire a catapult while learning all about these early inhabitants of the Nijmegen region. It seems as if they never actually left when you visit the Roman street in Museumpark Orientalis. Or let your children follow in the footsteps of knights in one of the castles, such as Doornenburg Castle, Hernen Castle or Wijchen Castle. Pancakes are a typical Dutch treat, delicious covered in a thick layer of syrup. Enjoy!
