In the afternoon, we head out onto the Arnhem battlefields seeing the Oosterbeek area, the landing zones near Wolfheze, St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, the ‘Urquhart House’ where General Urquhart hid during the battle, and end at the famous Arnhem Bridge.

We then spend the evening in Arnhem before returning to our hotel.
