Things to do

There is plenty to see and do in and around Wageningen. A flyer with tourist information, attractions and activities can be downloaded here. The app 'A taste of Wageningen' for mobile devices is freely available at Google Play and iOS App Store. The app contains 7 walking and cycling trails in and around Wageningen.

A cozy cinema ('Heerenstraattheater') is located in the city centre (Molenstraat 1B). Do not miss the Wageningen Mountain experience. This is 42-m high ice-pushed hill (with Cambisols) that is proudly referred to as 'The Mountain' by the locals. On the top there is a botanical garden ('Belmonte') with pretty views across the river plains. This makes it an excellent place to enjoy a summer evening. From the arboretum you can follow the pretty 'Bergpad' (Mountain trail) to the city centre.

In the city centre you find plenty of places to eat and drink, from simple eateries to fine dining in Michelin star restaurant 'O Mundo' in Hotel de Wereld. The largest concentrations of bars en restaurants are found at the Market (Markt) surrounding the church. Good choices are 'eating pubs'  'H41' (Herenstraat 41) and 'Buurman & Buurman' (Markt 18); and restaurants 'H'eerlijk' (Organic; Herenstraat 47), 'Colors Wold Food' (Markt 15), 'Het Oude Pakhuis' (Molenstraat 4) and (a bit more posh, O Mundo's sister) 'Drinks and Bites' (Markt 9).

Pub 'De Vlaamsche Reus' (The Flemish Giant), opposite the entrance of the Church on the Market square, boasts the largest selection of beers in Wageningen. Another popular choice for drinks is 'De Zaaier' (Herenstraat 33) which has a large Jenever collection (Dutch Gin).
