All those lush green spaces and fresh air around Arnhem will whet your appetite. That’s why you’ll find countless delicious and delightful stopping places: cosy brasseries, traditional pancake restaurants, castle restaurants or hip brick-oven pizza places. The chefs work with fresh and often local ingredients.
And don’t forget to try some Arnhems meisjes (biscuits) while you are here!
De Liemers is proud of its local products, and rightly so! They range from ‘forgotten’ vegetables to the juiciest fruit, from buffalo milk to award-winning wine, from flour straight from the mill to beef from freely-grazing Blonde d’Aquitaines cattle. And craft beers, sustainable catfish, mustard, cheeses, jams, chutneys and fruit juices. You’ll find them all in De Liemers - culinary, authentic and pure delight. Cycle through the varied river landscape on the Liemerse Streekproductenroute (Liemers local products route), for example. You can stop along the way to have a guided tour of farms, visit farm shops and restaurants, or to buy apples from a roadside stall.
'Arnhemse Meisjes’ are crunchy oval biscuits made from yeast dough with a generous sprinkling of sugar. The biscuits were invented in 1829 by the Arnhem-based baker Hagdorn. Nowadays the genuine Arnhemse Meisjes are only made at the Van Asselt bakery in Arnhem.
