Nijmeegse Bierfeesten

Four times a year the Nijmegen beerfest is organised. Next to the “Vierdaagse”, there is a Bock beer and winterbeer festival. All Nijmegen’s breweries (Nijmegen has 4 breweries!), but also many other, mostly smaller, breweries present their best beers!

Gebroeders van Nimwegen festival

An annual festival bringing the dark ages back to life in the city. With a fair, procession, knight fighting and a bird show. A whole weekend, the city is filled with people dressed as nobles, priests, craftsmen, etc of the 14th century. The fair and activities are mostly around the Market Square, St. Stevens Church and Lange Hezelstraat.

Nijmeegse Vierdaagse – 4 days March

Every year in the third week of July, Nijmegen plays host to the biggest hiking event in the world.

With about 45,000 hikers from around the globe, this event isn’t called “walk of the world” for nothing! The festivities last from the weekend prior to the hike, all through the week to the finish on Friday. Dozens of stages dot the city and around 1.5 million people come to visit.
