What The Netherlands have to offer

A stay in the Netherlands is enjoying kilometers of coastline, nature such as the Hoge Veluwe and the Oostvaardersplassen and historic cities such as The Hague and Utrecht. Did you know that the Netherlands has the highest museum density in the world? For example, visit the Rijksmuseum, the Mauritshuis and the Kröller-Müller Museum with the world famous Van Gogh collection. You will also find more than 100 restaurants in the Netherlands that have been awarded a Michelin star. In short: Enjoy the Netherlands!

When entering Wageningen, everyone immediately feels the difference with other cities.  Where else can you find an atmosphere as international and as hospitable? As City of Life Sciences Wageningen takes quality of life in the broadest sense of the word very seriously. The many and varied international students of Wageningen University and Research centre greatly influence the general atmosphere in the city and on the many terraces in the centre.

Restaurants and small cafes with menus from all over the world cater to the needs of the international students, thereby also offering tourists new tastes… ideal to try after shopping at the great variety of shops in the city centre. Historically, Wageningen is inextricably connected to the liberation of The Netherlands at the end of WWII. On 5 May 1945, the capitulation was signed at Wageningen in Hotel De Wereld, still an important feature of the city. You are cordially invited to have a look at the so-called Capitulation Room which has remained virtually unchanged since that historic happening. From 5 May 2011, the special Flame of Liberty is burning near Hotel De Wereld. This eternal flame will remind us that liberty should never be taken for granted.
