Arnhem, with 63,987 inhab. (1/y Rom. Cath.), from 1233 to 1538
the residence of the Dukes of Gaiters: is still the capital of the
Dutch province of Geel anes whose inhabitants are described by
an old proverb as ‘Hoog van moed, klein van goed, een zwaard in de
hand, is ’t wapen van Gelderland’ (‘Great in courage, poor in goods,
sword in hand, such is the motto of Guelderland’ ‘, The town is
prettily situated on the right of the Lower Rhine, on the 8. slopes
(Veluwezoom) of the Veluwe or Velau range of hills (p. 444). The
town was re-fortified by General Coehoorn after its capture by the
French in 1672, but the ramparts have now been converted into
promenades. Arnhem, one of the most attractive towns in Holland,
s a favourite residence of ae ‘nabobs’ from the Hast Indies.
Leaving the station at the N. W. end of the town, and bearing to
the left, we pass through the Nieuwe Plein, then turn to the left
and follow the main line of thoroughfare in the old town (Ryn-
Straat, Vyzel-Straat, and Ketel- Straat ), which leads to the E. to the
attractive Velper Plein (p. 446).
In the 8. part of the town, adjoining the Rhine, is the Grootr
Markt, in which the Groote Kerk (Protestant), with its conspicuous
tower, and the Town Hall are situated. The late-Gothic Groorz
Ksrx (Pl. 1; sacristan lives on the N. side, fee 25 c.) was built in
1425 et seq. and restored in 1894-41902. The choir contains the
the above-mentioned hotels; also, *Café
