Honig complex: Nijmegen creative hotspot near the Waal
Since 2014 Nijmegen has a new creative Hotspot, just outside the city centre, close to the river: the Honigcomplex.
The former industrial factory is brought back to live by an array of creative entrepreneurs, ranging from trampoline-halls and artisan burger joints to hipster bike-shops and workshops for all kinds of designers and makers. Oh, and there's a chocolate bar and a micro-brewery and a gallery and plenty of other creative businesses that i'm forgetting about now.
Once a year the entire complex opens its doors: the brewery presenting their latest beer, the designers showcasing the way they work and bars and artisan icecream-shops welcoming all visitors with specials and the best snacks.
The Honig Complex also houses C-More Conceptstore. In their large industrial showroom, C-More offers a stylish collection of design from independent labels and design studio's from the Netherlands and beyond.
