Het Eigen Kwartier

From Bisschop Hamerstraat to the Mariënburgplein, from Vlaamsegas and Tweede Walstraat to the Van Welderenstraat and Van Broekhuysenstraat: together we are Het Eigen Kwartier.

The entrepreneurs and inhabitants pulled together with the municipality and started building their own special piece of Nijmegen. A place full of history, shaded terraces in the indoor gardens, and some rough edges. Under the name Het Eigen Kwartier, they offer you a varied selection: everything for a nice day in the city. Lunch, shopping, art, drinks, dinner, and a good night's rest.


Do make sure to come back regularly. In the years to come, Het Eigen Kwartier will become even greener, properties will be renovated or even completely redeveloped. Read the regional vision or watch the video of The Council on the regional vision.

See you soon!
