05 June 2018 – training #10

201806050802WotW-10-1Leaving home at 08:00am sharp, temperature 14C and a sombre weather forecast.

Directly Westbound (Wolfkuilse-weg) then Northbound (Energie-weg) to reach the beginning of “The Crossing”. That already takes 45 minutes non-stop walking. Crossing the river Waal and leaving the bridge on the former dike of the river Waal. Eastbound to the ancient 201806050802WotW-10-2Arnheim bridge, then Southbound to Berg and Dal (Hill and Valley). First stop, after 2:30h walking. Coffee & apple cake. Then Westbound, over the famous Zeven-heuvelenweg (Seven Hills way), passing the Canadian War Cimetary, to Groesbeek. From Groesbeek Northbound in the direction of Nimwegen.

After a total of 20K / 13.33M We took bus 5 to the city.

  • bottom – a view from the Arnheim bridge on the river front, with on top the famous octagonal chapel of St. Nicholas in the Valkhof Castle (built in 1030); nearby stand ruins of another part of the castle – so called Barbarossa ruins from the 12th century. The castle was demolished in 1797, just keeping its oldest part – the chapel. Below, the red brick building, the brand new museum “The Bastion”.
