The city of Arnhem is best known as the site of the Battle for Arnhem Bridge during 'Operation Market Garden' in the Second World War - a battle recreated by the 1977 movie "A Bridge Too Far". The city was favoured through history by the Dutch nobility. During the 19th century it was a genteel resort, famous for its picturesque beauty.
