Not far from the Airborne-museum in Oosterbeek, near Arnhem, are the remains of the former estate ‘de Hemelse Berg’ (Heavenly Hill). A pavilion was built on top of one of the highest hills in the park. It did not only offer pleasant views to the surrounding countryside, but also a restroom with running water, a traveler noted in 1763. The same spot is now occupied by a late 19th century monument, dedicated to the family who at the time owned the estate.
