Liberation Route

The Arnhem – Nijmegen Liberation Route follows a section of the path trodden by the allies during the liberation of Europe. The route starts in Normandy and continues via Nijmegen and Arnhem in the direction of Berlin. The Arnhem Nijmegen region played an important role at the end of the second World War. One of the largest airborne landings in history took place here during Operation Market Garden in September 1944. It only partially succeeded. The allies could not hold Arnhem, but Nijmegen was liberated. The final liberation, Operation Veritable, was launched from this area several months later, in February 1945.
