6th International Congress on



Nijmegen, the Netherlands


Welcome in Nijmegen!

Charlemagne turned Nijmegen, now the oldest town in the country, into an imperial town. An army camp was built high above the river amidst woods and hills. The panoramic view remains as spectacular as ever. In Nijmegen and its surrounding area you will find the best this country has to offer in terms of scenic beauty. Contained between the rivers Maas and Waal, Ooijpolder and Duffelt nature reserves each have their own charm. Tucked away between the hills are the towns and villages of Beek-Ubbergen, Berg en Dal, Groesbeek and Mook. And then of course there is the oldest town in the Netherlands. Visit Nijmegen and imagine yourself back in the past.
