    Accomodations for your stay

    There is a holiday park just outside of Arnhem, only 10 min by car:
    It is located directly opposite of the beautiful National Park Hoge Veluwe, were you can hike for a day.

    A little bit further down the road, approximately 20 – 25 minutes drive there is another one:

    Then there is the Rijnhotel:
    Not the cheapest, but located with a view on the river the Rijn.

    If you like to stay in the middle of the center, but next to the Park Sonsbeek, check out . Limited availability, but it would be my preferred spot if I had to stay in Arnhem. The city center around the corner, the beautiful English style Sonsbeek Park as you backyard. And only 5 min walk from the train station.

    Of course you can also check Airbnb

    There is one beautiful camping, but they only have very limited places left:
