THE MIDDLE AGES 
  • Arnhem flourished in the 14th century. Imposing stone mercantile houses with spacious storage vaults rose in the merchants’ quarter. The vaults were usually rented out separately, often to merchants who stored their wares there. Many of the old cellars were rediscovered in the nineteen-nineties.
