Arnhem – September 2007
Hotel: Golden Tulip Arnhem Velp
Again, an out of town motel-style place, but with very nice facilities and picturesque garden. Taxi into Arnhem is reasonable, but the city centre itself was a pretty quiet place, very little nightlife and many of the pubs were closing early. Poor show!
First day - British landing grounds at Ginkel Heath, Arnhem Oosterbeek War Cemetery, Arnhem Bridge.
Second day - Hartenstein Hotel, HQ of the 1st Airborne Division during the battle - now a museum, memorial at Wolfheze, Oosterbeek Perimeter.
British paras recreate the Operation Market Garden drops outside Arnhem.
