Ticket sales have started!

The Airborne March is on! We are extremely proud to organize the 75th march this year. We hope to see many of you return to Oosterbeek to attend this beautiful anniversary on the 3rd of September. Right now, we’re fully committed to preparing the march in the best way possible. Although we’re unable to confirm anything at the moment; there is a good possibility that the parade this year will once again be attended by veterans of the battle for Arnhem.

From today onwards, ticket presales are available from our website. Purchasing your ticket before starting on the day of the event itself is of course still possible.

We understand that due to the past period there may be some reluctance to participate en masse on the day of the march. We are now investigating the possibilities of giving participants the opportunity to walk the march by themselves from September 4 to September 26, regardless of the day of the actual march. Ticket sales for this alternative march will appear on the website once we’ve established a clear plan regarding the distribution of medals with our supplier. We will keep you informed. Of course our biggest hope is for us to be able to welcome you all with a  warm handshake on the 3rd of September.

This year we want to specifically call your attention to the Oosterbeekse Burgermonument. Which is a monument for all civilian casualties that fell during the war, presented by the ‘Opdat wij niet vergeten -  Oosterbekers’ foundation. The Airborne March would like to express our support for their goals.

The ‘lest we forget -  Oosterbekers’ foundation is currently trying to erect a monument on a prominent location along the route of the Airborne march. We hope that all of our attendees who’d like to see such representation in Oosterbeek consider making a donation through
their website. You can also follow the foundation through their Facebook page. You will also find them on September 3rd along the Airborne march route and Sportpark Hartenstein.
