The area around Nijmegen has multiple war stories to tell. Especially during the last war period, the area played a leading role on the world stage both with Operation Market Garden and the Rhineland Offensive.

In the city heavy fighting took place and later the Allied troops started their advance from here towards Berlin. Even before that, it was an area under occupation, experiencing wartime violence.

The route takes you along beautiful cycle paths passing several monuments, commemorating amongst others the persecution of Jews and the bombing of 22 February 1944. It also highlights the resistance, the battle for the bridges and for the liberation of the city during Operation Market Garden in September 1944. Crossing the historic city centre and along the cycling along the river, this is a varied route that brings different stories together.
