The town of Ede

Location

The town itself is situated halfway between the larger cities of Arnhem and Utrecht with direct rail and road connections to both these cities. There are no connections to any water nearby, however, there also is a direct road connection to the city of Wageningen which hosts a small industrial port on the river Rijn and a direct road and rail connection to the city of Arnhem, which features larger port at a greater distance. The environment is clean and green due to the fact Ede is partly built in a forest and partly on the central Dutch plains in the national park called Nationaal Park "De Hoge Veluwe".

Economy

Economically, the town of Ede is doing fairly well thanks to the proximity of major highways and railways which offer fast connections to the port city of Rotterdam, the airport of Schiphol and the Ruhr Area in the country of Germany. The main sources of employment used to be a factory belonging to the Dutch Enka company and the three military bases situated in the northeast of the town. The factory however, has been closed and the military bases are largely underused ever since the conscription was abolished. The town's economy is lately becoming more focused on national tourism from the more densely populated western cities like Amsterdam and Den Haag, on education such as local colleges and the large Wageningen University in the city of Wageningen.
