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.
Today, the city is still known for parks and green spaces. The Arnhem War Museum covers the entire period of World War II, from the years of occupation to the Battle of Arnhem and ending with the liberation by Canadian troops in 1945. A vast array of uniforms and equipment is on display, including original vehicles.
