Nijmegen, considered as the oldest city of the Netherlands, celebrated its 2000 years anniversary in 2005. It is surrounded by hills, polder, woods, and wide grass fields. It offers a tremendous life quality, with its convenient biking lines, beaches along the Waal river, as well as cultural and recreational activities. Every year, the city is hosting the International Four Days Marches (Vierdaagse), one of the biggest marching event in the world.
