Four Days Nijmegen 2024

WHERE: Nijmegen, Netherlands
WHEN: from 16th to 19th July 2024

Four days Nijmegen is the largest non-competitive walk in the world, taking place for 104 years during the third week of July.

An internationally renowned event attended by over 45,000 people from over 70 different countries every year.
An event in which children, teenagers, adults and the elderly can participate. Four different generations!

The goal is to obtain the coveted Cross of the 4Days march. We march over the course of four days, starting and ending in Nijmegen, along a four-leaf clover path with the center.

Born in 1909 with the aim of keeping soldiers in perfect shape, the Four Days Nijmegen has become a real festival of sport, culture and tradition.
The celebrations, in fact, are not limited to just the days of the march, starting as early as the Saturday before the start, until Friday.
A whole week that literally distorts the rhythms of this beautiful Dutch town.
