Take a look

This city walk will help you get an idea of what Ede was like in WWII and how it has changed since then. Information panels along the route bring history to life.

In the Notaris Fischerstraat you will find the old Fischers House, now the home of the famous art dealership Simonis and Buunk. The Old Reformed Church has been preserved in its glory and is beautifully and colorfully illuminated in the evenings. On the corner of Molenstraat/Telefoonweg is the Concordia tower mill, dating from 1865, which runs and is open on Mondays and Saturdays. On those days there is also a weekly market on the Markt on Molenstraat. A beautiful square with playground equipment, benches and varied plants. And where the 'sprayers' provide a lot of sparkling cheerfulness when the weather is nice.

The Mausoleum (corner Vossenakker, Arnhemseweg) on the Paasberg in Ede is an honorary cemetery for fallen resistance members from the Second World War located in a park with spacious lawns.
