From Amsterdam: WW II Private Day Trip to Vught and Arnhem

8. From Amsterdam: WW II Private Day Trip to Vught and Arnhem

Operation Market Garden, A Bridge Too Far, General John Frost, Concentration Camp Herzogenbusch. These are all familiar names if you are interested in the history of WWII. On this tour we will learn more about this part of Dutch history. We will pick you up at your hotel and will drive to the former Nazi concentration camp Herzogenbusch (Vught) in the South of Holland. The camp was first used in 1942 and held 31,000 Jewish and political prisoners. We will visit the remainders of the concentration camp with its reconstructed watchtowers, barracks, crematorium and children’s memorial. From Vught we will drive to Arnhem, a city on the river Rhine. Here we will visit the Airborne Museum at Villa Hartenstein. During the Battle of Arnhem in September 1944, which was part of the military operation Market Garden, Hartenstein became the headquarters of the British Airborne Division during heavy fighting. The daring attempt to punch through German lines and capture the Ruhr area to quickly end the war was unsuccessful. The bridge at Arnhem turned out to be a bridge too far. Now, Hartenstein is home to personal stories from British, Polish, and German soldiers as well as from civilians, told through the museum’s unique historical objects. After this we will have a short stop at the John Frost Bridge. The Bridge over the Rhine at Arnhem was the last bridge that needed to be captured during Operation Market Garden. If the Allies could capture this bridge the road to Germany would lay open. The bridge plays an important role in the movie A Bridge Too Far. From the John Frost Bridge, we will continue to our last stop of the day: the Arnhem Oosterbeek War Cemetery. Here most of the 1684 fallen soldiers of the September landings are laid to rest.

What people are saying about Gelderland

Absolutely beautiful gallery in a beautiful park. A bit of effort to get there from Amsterdam, took me 1 tram, 1 train, and 2 busses, but finding the way and transfers was easy enough, and public transport has wifi to keep track of where you're going. And you get nice scenery along the way! The museum is in a national park, which is lovely to walk through, if a bit overpriced. The gallery itself is in a beautiful building, with a well designed layout and a stunning collection. They also have a fantastic sculpture garden to walk through. I spent almost a week in Amsterdam, and going out to Kroller-Muller was a highlight, very highly recommend!!

A great day out for the whole family. Admission is a bit more expensive, but the exhibition has a lot to offer. In addition to many different locomotives and wagons, there is also a small indoor roller coaster and a train simulator. For a visit you can plan a relaxed day to explore everything.

Having F. Leger impresed my daughter a lot, She knows that my professor Kazimierz Ostrowski was a student in his class in Paris, than i was a student of prof. Ostrowski some years later in Poland, Gdansk .
