Dutch town: Wijchen in Gelderland

Wijchen is located in the eastern part of the Netherlands in the Gelderland province, just beside the city of Nijmegen and very close to the German border.

Wijchen Castle


‘Wijchen Castle’ circa 1392. The castle underwent major developments and annexation which led to the now castle in renaissance gothic architecture style. Kasteel van Wijchen (in Dutch) is now a museum and is partly being used by the city hall (i.e., renting out the castle rooms for events, parties, etcetera).

Wijchen Centrum


A quick peek into the town’s centre... a bit quiet for a late afternoon.

De Oude Molen (Windmill)


Windmill ‘De Oude Molen’ circa 1799. Like the castle, she also underwent several restorations.
