What you will love about this home
My house is suited for a small family (1, maybe 2 kids) and is located in a quietly street. No noise in the evening or night. My neighbours are very friendly and helpfull.
The double bed is only 120 x 190 cm!
A typical Arnhem transport stops almost in front of my door: the Trolleybus. You barely don't hear him.
The furniture is simple but comfortable. The backgarden faces SouthWest. If you like forrest-like parcs, you can make long walks from this house.
The Nederlands Openluchtmuseum (Dutch Openairmuseum) and Burger's Zoo are nearby! Bicycle shops are nearby too, to rent a bike.

My home is situaties in the district 'Geitenkamp', on the highest point of Arnhem (80 m) and has a typical structure and a very special architecture. It is build as a so called 'gardenvillage' (1920-1930) and has hereby many different heights. The Geitenkamp is a caracteristic ‘workersdistrict’ with a village-like caracter. The Geitenkamp is being called the most ‘Arnhemly’ district. Many different cultures live by each other. The services are a neighborhood shoppingcentre (Marktplein), some local shops spread around, schools and social-culturel buildings. The district is easily accesible by public transport.
Arnhem had a medieval centre, a historic church with Disney gargoyles (!) and a elevator made of glass to the top of the churchtower. One of the three bridges is the one from the movie "A brigde too far", known for the Battle of Arnhem in WOII.
It is lovely shopping in the beuatifull alleys in the centre, behind the big shopping area. You can find small terraces everywhere. You'll find coffeehouses with handmade pies, biological juices, or pubs with 100 different kind of beers.
Most restaurants have a small garden at the back, and at the waterside (the Rhine/Rijn) most people sit on the terraces by the water.
In Arnhem is a concert hall, one big and some small theatres, musea, a fashion district with designers, etc.
From Arnhem you can make trips to the Posbank (forest and heath), the Hoge Veluwe (forest and shifting sands), Nijmegen, Utrecht, Zutphen, Apeldoorn, Doetinchem or Kleve in Germany.
In these regio you will find lots of musea, interesting for the younger and the older.
By car you are in 1 hour in Amsterdam. But is it hard to park your car low0budget overthere. I'll advice to take the train.
Arnhem has 4 trainstations. Central Station is brand new and an attraction where you should be shown around.
