Nijmegen is the oldest city in the Netherlands, the second to be recognized as such in Roman times, and in 2005 celebrated 2,000 years of existence. Today, its population amounts to 179,000 thus contributing more than half to the Arnhem–Nijmegen metropolitan area.
Few Roman remains are visible in the city, for instance, a fragment of the old city wall near the casino and the foundations of the amphitheatre traced in the paving of the present-day Rembrandtstraat. Not many very old buildings are left in town but there are still a few noteworthy sights. Valkhof hill downtown features a Carolingian chapel (8th/9th century AD) and a small remainder of an imperial castle that was demolished in 1798. [source Wikipedia]
The city has long been known for its annual Four Days Marches, beginning on the third Tuesday of each July. Over 40,000 participants from about 70 countries undertake four days of walking with distances ranging from 30 to 50 km. The marches are supplemented with festivities such as the music festival de-Affaire.
Nijmegen has an oceanic climate. It is one of the warmest cities of the Netherlands, especially during summer. In August, the average daily mean temperature is 17.5°C but frequently climbs to 25°C with a record high of 36°C at an average relative humidity of 77%. With an average precipitation of 56 mm, August is the month of smallest probability of rainfall. [source Wikipedia]
