This is a fairly green walk that leads from the Stone Bank right through the courts of Heseveld to Heyendaal. The Pieter Postplein and the path through the white Heseveld (Jerusalem) show how beautifully this post-war neighborhood with its courtyards was built with Marshall monies and debris from the war damage. The style is that of the Bossche School, which is characterized by the use of concrete and brick and uses the ratio of the so-called plastic number Psi = 1.32 (It is a slightly more complicated brother of the Golden Section Number Phi = 1.62 ). Psi was developed by the Monk-Architect Hans van der Laan. You will leave the neighborhood via the Dennenstraat and the Muntmeesterlaan and enter the Goffertpark at the level of the LeoXIII street. After a short climb you will be at a large stone bench from 1953 from which you have a beautiful view of the Goffert park. The Verfraaiings Vereniging Nijmegen has donated various works of art to the city. The Four Seasons that are now at the Schouwburgparkje are an example of this. The bank is a bit bigger than the Heese, but it is certainly a colleague. Via the ornamental garden you reach the Goffert farm where you will find a beautiful landscape garden on the right. According to the board there are ten. The garden was founded in 1982 on the initiative of IVN volunteers and they are still there. Behind the garden is a railway line or better. On Sunday afternoons you could hear the steam whistle of the train in Hees. It is packed with rail and all at an amusement park in Sweden. You continue to the Eendracht and pass De Schop, which reminds us of the many excavations that the men had to do in the park in the thirties. Via the tip of the Goffert you will cross the Hatertse weg to the Van Peltlaan to walk to the next landscape garden. You will first pass the south side of Radboud University towards Brakke (n) stein. In fact you walk around the "Union". It is one of the youngest Dutch Alma Maters (1923) and has 10,000 employees and 18,000 students. It is interesting to read that this Catholic university (Bisschop Eijk (2014) is a great chancellor) should not grant canonical (ecclesiastical) degrees to its theology students. How that works these days is not clear to me. On the Houtlaan you will come across the Berchmanianum. It is a Jesuit monastery which looks a lot like the St Joseph monastery in terms of building. It dates from the same time (1929) when all those monasteries in Nijmegen were founded. The Union was fairly related to this monastery. In the Second World War, the confiscated monastery was used by the Nazis for the Lebensborn project to improve the Aryan race. You will now approach Brakkestein, here you find the beautiful chalet, the restored horse stables and the old Hortus Botanicus (Arcadia). You walk there on the south-east can to climb the Alpinium. On Tuesdays you can go to the closed area for soup and bread. You will end the walk behind the green Huygens building. Despite the collapse in the number of engineering students, there is a wonderful new (2007) institute here that has at least given Nijmegen a "little" Nobel Prize winner (André Geim). Before you arrive at Heyendaal Station, you will walk past one of the strongest (superconducting) magnets (20Tesla) in our country, which is in the NMR Laboratory. It is in that round (Goudsmit) Pavilion, where physics and biology work together through underground corridors.
