Hanging ornament De Oversteek


"Feur ien 't kerstbeumke"

Your Christmas tree will be extra special if you decorate it with beautiful memories. Your grandmother's first Christmas bauble, a cuddly toy from your loved one or a pendant with an image of your city. For Christmas 2020, a set of four different Christmas pendants was released, each with its own image of the oldest city in the Netherlands. Four times the pride of Nijmegen.

De Oversteek

On November 23, 2013, De Oversteek was taken into use as an additional city bridge to relieve traffic on the Waal bridge. After a design competition, the plan of architects Laurent Ney and Chris Poulissen was chosen as the final design.
The opening was performed by former Dutch general Ben Bouman and American veteran Francis Keefe. Both crossed the Waal during the Second World War.
Since October 2014, a veteran has been walking the Sunset March on De Over crossing every day. A special march commemorating 48 fallen soldiers who tried to cross the Waal during the Second World War. During the tribute, 48 pairs of light poles turn on at the pace of a slow march.

I Love Nijmegen

This tree hanger was designed by De Tinnen Roos and was released in collaboration with I Love Nijmegen.
