Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-19-07  bystander: Nijmegen [ˈnɛɪmeɣən] (pronunciation (help·info)) (obsolete spellings: Nijmwegen, Nymegen, Nieumeghen — known in German as Nimwegen, French as Nimègue, and Spanish and Italian as Nimega) is a municipality and a city in the east of the Netherlands, near the German border. It is considered to be the oldest city in the Netherlands and celebrated its 2000th year of existence in 2005.

Nijmegen is famous for the International Four Day March Nijmegen (Dutch: Internationale Vierdaagse Afstandsmarsen Nijmegen, informally Nijmeegse Vierdaagse), an annual event starting on the third Tuesday in July, comprising four days of walking (distances ranging from 30 to 50 km a day), and the accompanying festivities (the Vierdaagsefeesten), which have been drawing the largest crowds for any Dutch event in the past few years.

Nijmegen is host to a university, the Radboud University Nijmegen, it counted 17,627 students and its staff 4,336 people in the year of 2006. It was founded in 1923 as the first Catholic university in the Netherlands. It used to be called (Catholic) University of Nijmegen until 2004, when it took its current name.

In my search for King gambit games, I was very honoured to find two Dutch cities in the player list (The Hague and Nijmegen; Stuttgart is a city in the south of Germany). I did not manage to find any information about the 3 mentioned correspondence games in the player profile yet.
