Living in Arnhem

The Dutch often refer to Arnhem as the Little Hague of the East, and it's not hard to see why. With a beautiful waterfront, plenty of historic and architecturally rich sights to see and some wonderful parks, people living in Arnhem have long had plenty to smile about. The city is hardly all that little, though – at 150,000 people, it is one of the Netherlands' larger cities and it certainly has a metropolitan buzz. It is an old city, and although it was first mentioned in 893, there is evidence that people have been living in Arnhem for far longer. Ancient firestones suggest that people have been settled in the region for a far more impressive seventy thousand years. As a city with plenty of history, there is a lot to explore. The Openluchtmuseum – 'open air museum' – is big enough to feature whole traditional houses and customs, and the Korenmarkt is a popular square to go for a drink in the evening.

Moving to Arnhem

As is the case with any city in The Netherlands, the city is well connected and moving to Arnhem should be about as logistically simple as it gets. The main train station is connected to German cities including Frankfurt and Düsseldorf, as well as to Moscow. You can be relatively confident that these trains will run on time and from there, you'll have a number of well-served international airports to choose form. Expats can also glean plenty of advice and information from the Expat Magazine on everything from expatriation to expat finance, insurance and cross-cultural communication – although, once again, the chances are most of the people you'll meet will speak good English and be more than willing to help. For personal accounts of moving to cities in the region, the InterNations website has plenty of discussion groups and forums full of the experiences and tips of other members.

Working in Arnhem

The western European climate is mild, although Arnhem gets a little more than its fair share of rain thanks to the nearby Veluwe, the largest forest in The Netherlands. Still, this makes for a great day out and it is generally a pleasant city to work in. Expats generally find working in Arnhem to be easy to adapt to, as the city's services, cafés and restaurants are all of a high quality and life is generally calmer than in bigger cities. You might find yourself wanting to get in touch with other expatriates living in Arnhem, and the easiest way to do this by far is to contact other expats over the InterNations discussion groups, forums or private communication channels. It shouldn't be long before you locate the expat community, and organizing a meet-up is only one step away from this. Once you've got to know the expat network, this beautiful and gentle city really will be the ideal place to be based.
