  • Went to the small museum in sight of the bridge very small modern but bridge was disappointing it was not what I expected..having seen films like a bridge to far it..its difficult to explain but it was situated amongst tall modern buildings and did not seem to fit in...paid my respects to our gallant soldiers and left........thanks to the people who have informed me that this bridge is not the original one during the war..but may explain my feelings .....but I still feel it was right for me to visit if only to visit the area and museum to pay my respects to all who died in this famous battle....God Bless

  • There is a very beautiful history behind this bridge. If you are visiting Arnhem this place is worth viewing. It has a very beautiful view on the river. Good place to walk and wander.

  • This is a new bridge that has been built in place of the famous one that was the scene of the battle of Arnhem between the British and German armies. There is a nearby museum for further information and a modern statue in honour of John Frost. The surrounding area is somewhat industrial, but a walk on the river bank is a pleasant experience, especially if you are interested in the history of the bridge itself. There are plenty of parking spaces by the river.

  • A Bridge Too Far! Those who knew about the famous battle that happened in September, 1944 would definitely know about this bridge in Arnhem. This was supposed to be the target bridge over the River Rhine in Holland, which was the last hurdle that allowed the Allies troops into Germany territory. This bridge was known with such a name is because of this Irish author Cornelius Ryan (5 June 1920 – 23 November 1974) for his writings on popular the 3 World War II books: The Longest Day: 6 June 1944 D-Day (1959), The Last Battle (1966), and A Bridge Too Far (1974). There was also the film (1977) which was based that book that describes the ill-fated Operation Market Garden -- an Allied plot orchestrated by the British Field Marshall Bernard Law Montgomery with the intention of ending the war in Europe. The concept behind the plan was to drop 35,000 soldiers into Holland approximately 60 miles beyond the German lines, to seize six vital bridges, and to reinforce the paratroopers by sending in thousands of ground troops. However, various mishaps jeopardized the mission and eventually the Allies were cut off and had to withdraw, suffering severe losses. The bridge is named after Major-General John Dutton Frost (1912–1993), who commanded the British forces that reached and defended the bridge and later had to surrender to the Germans after almost 9 days of fierce battle. This is a rebuild as the original bridge was destroyed later in the war. However, for a tourist that wants to visit the location, this is still a bridge that can be found and seen.
