Nice park on the hill offering view over city and the Waal river
Aug 2021
It is located close to the city centre on a hill. Apart from trees and bushes there are ruins of a church as well as a tower accommodating a restaurant. From the hill top there is great view over Waal river and its bridges as well as part of the old town. One can walk it around in 15 min or take it easy and sit on a bench and admire the place and view for an hour or longer.

Top of the hill
Jul 2021
This historic park is on top of the hill, looking over the river and the surrounding areas. This is where the Romans built their fortress. Some parts of it remain.

Beautiful historica site
Sep 2020 • Couples
It never starts to bore me, historical places like this. To know that hundreds of years ago people lived here, enting and drinking and hopefully happy.

It is on a small Hill in a park where you have a beautiful photographic spot of the river De Waal and the Waalbridge. During the Second World War there was a huge battle over this bridge. In the touristic center (called the VVV) people can give more information.

Great views from an historic park
Jul 2020
Forming the Eastern extremity of Nijmegen's city centre, the Valkhof is an interesting park built on the site of a former Roman encampment overlooking the Waal. The park's elevated position means it has a few fine viewpoints along with its other attractions which include an attractive little chapel and the ruins of a former palace. After spending an afternoon wandering around the city, it was nice to retreat to this park for a bit of peace, greenery and the aforementioned fine views.

Nice park with views of the river

This park has lovely views of the river. It has an old church which is small but worth a visit. Some good history here.

Small but beautiful
May 2019 • Couples
This is a small but very beautiful park. You can wander through the trees, visit the small chapel and then have a fantastic view of Nijmegen Bridge and the Rhine. It was wonderful to find such a peaceful spot.

Good luck to the couple who were getting married in the chapel today.

Strategic historic location
Mar 2019 • Solo
Few cities in the Netherlands, if any, have a park on a hill in the center of town. As with all strategic locations in border areas Valkhof park has remnants of historic structures. Julius Ceasar's infamous Legio X was here in the first century AD and Redbeard's castle was erected at Valkhof 1000 years later. Last but not least Nazi Germany waged and lost one of its final battles here. So a lot to explore in this park, though just enjoying the view over the Waal, relax or jog are other fine options.

Nice and peaceful
Sep 2018 • Couples
My wife and I sometimes take time out to walk in this park.
It is situated in the middle of the city but walking in there or just sitting on one of the many park benches make you feel as though you were in the country side with rolling hills and what seems like 5/600 year old trees and a small lake.
Well worth the effort to visit
