Do you know what a German post-box looks like? Have you ever come across a sign with the word Nimwegen? Come and join us for a fun digital game of Memory matching photos with Dutch and German letters and signs all taken in and around Nijmegen. Even if you don’t know German and have never seen some of the signs, we are sure you will solve the task in no time. Playing our game will show you that Dutch and German are so closely related that you understand signs in the other language without even knowing it. Be careful though, there are some tricky matches and we might trick you with some!
