Out and about

4 en 5 meiSeveral events are organised in Wageningen every year. January starts with the Bluesfestival, the ultimate pub-crawl. In April and in November the Bergrace by Night is staged, a nightly run starting on the Wageningse Berg and finishing on the Grebbeberg in Rhenen. The race is run entirely in the dark and is characterised by the thousands of bobbing lights carried by the runners. The final challenging climb through the dark wood is traditionally highlighted by a thousand lighted candles placed along the route. The evening is concluded by a party in the Ouwehand Zoo’s Jungle restaurant in Rhenen. In cold winters there are plenty of skating possibilities in the Uiterwaarden, the low stretches of flooded land along the river.
