Municipality of NijmegenMuch more can be told about Nijmegen as a city and its surroundings; however, rather than repeating information that can be found elsewhere on the Internet, we refer you directly to the website of the Municipality of Nijmegen, which tells about life in Nijmegen. On their pages you can also find information about working and doing business in Nijmegen. The City of Nijmegen has created an Expat Desk specifically for expatriates coming to or already living in Nijmegen; there you can ask all of your questions.
Dealing with the DutchWhat can you expect when you come to live and work in the Netherlands? There is a wealth of information online, and many forums can help with any questions you may have. Expatica is a good site. There are also a large number of books, like:
- Dealing with the Dutch by Jacob Vossestein (ISBN 9068325655) offers a comprehensive and practical overview of Dutch culture
- The Low Sky by Han van der Horst (ISBN 9055941999) shows how Dutch culture was shaped by history, geography and more
- The Undutchables by Colin R. White & Laurie Boucke (ISBN 1888580224) a funny - yet superficial - view of Dutch culture from the perspective of expats
