Wageningen is a small city in the centre of the Netherlands, located between Utrecht and Arnhem. It has 40,000 inhabitants.
Wageningen is best known for its university. The university has a worldwide reputation in the fields of agriculture, food, life sciences, biotechnology. A significant part of the population works or studies at the WUR (Wageningen University and Research Centre).
Wageningen is also known as the place where World War II ended in the Netherlands, where the Canadian and German generals negotiated the terms of surrender. For this reason, the celebration of Liberation Day (5th of May) always starts in Wageningen.
Wageningen is located on the edge of the Veluwe, which is a forest-rich area (unlike most of the rest of the Netherlands). The Veluwe is a popular holiday destination for Dutch people who want to spend a weekend or a week away.
