Sightseeing in Arnhem - what to see. Complete travel guide

Arnhem Arnhem is a city in the western part of Holland. This city was mentioned for the first time in the 9th century. At that time Arnhem was called Oppidium Arnoldi Villa. This place got the status of the city in 1233, when the country was ruled by Otto II. Arnhem becomes famous in the 19th century, when the city turns into a cultural center and a home town for many famous Dutch painters. Such atmosphere of refinement started attracting many famous and rich people and so they started building numerous luxury villas on the territory of the city. These buildings have been saved until our days and so tourists can enjoy visiting multiple old mansions and walk in huge parks and gardens.

Koepelchurch is one of the most attractive and popular sights in Arnhem. The church was built in the 13th century by the representatives of St. John order. Saint Peters Guesthouse mint place is located just nearby. Also don’t forget to visit Grote Markt, where you can see two wonderful buildings. One of them is a mysterious and a gloomy building named Duivelshuis or “Devil’s House”. While going through its dark halls and narrow corridors, you will find out many interesting legends and tales that throw the light upon the strange name of this house. Just opposite Duivelshuis you will see the house of Maarten van Rossum. The great Dutch military leader lived here.
The so called Corn square is considered one of the most beautiful places in this town. This name appeared many centuries ago, when the square was a small trading area surrounded by corn fields and fruit gardens. Another place of interest that should be definitely visited during your stay in Arnhem is Sabelspoort fortress. Many historical events are connected with this building. The fort was built in the end of the 15th century and for a long time it was used as a prison. Today only several towers remind of the gloomy past of this fortress. All halls have been turned into space for the National Heritage Museum. Bakkerstraat Street is known for its rich shopping experience. The name of the street can be translated as “the street of bakers”, but today you will find there not only bakeries, but also many boutiques, product pavilions and jewelry stores.

From the series “The most bizarre and fancy living houses”
