B&B and Hotel at the Cargo Bike Festival

When you come to the International Cargo Bike Festival in Nijmegen you can stay at two lovely ships in De Lindenberghaven (harbour) in Nijmegen. The two riverboats ‘Opoe Sientje’ and ‘Orca’ are turned into great B&B facilities. From here it is only a 10 - 15 minutes ride by bike to the Cargo Bike Festival at the Vasim.
