Valkhof

After 111 photos it’s time to close last summer’s travelogue, there are other photos waiting to be posted as well after all. Like this one, taken on an early spring day in the city of Nijmegen in the east of the Netherlands. The city is the largest in the province of Gelderland and is located on the river Waal (a branch of the Rhine) and close to the Dutch-German border. It is the oldest city in the country and was originally built as a Roman military camp, which later became the town of Ulpia Noviomagus Batavorum.

The photo was taken in the park called Valkhof, located at the site of a former imperial castle, originally built by Charlemagne. You can see here the chapel of the castle, which is one of the few parts that still stand today. It is called the Sint-Nicolaaskapel (St Nicolas Chapel) and dates back to the year 1000. The bridge in the background is the Waalbrug, which had the longest arch (244m) in Europe at the time of construction (1936).
