On the 5th of May 1945, the Canadian general Charles Foulkes discussed with the German commander in chief Johannes Blaskowitz the capitulation of the German troops in the Netherlands at Hotel the Wereld (hotel the World) in Wageningen. They were in presence of His Royal Highness Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands.
At museum the Casteelse Poort in Wageningen was an exhibition about Wageningen during World War II. At this exhibition was also the furniture of Hotel De Wereld (Hotel The World) and the pencil which was used to sign the capitulation. This was a good reason to go to Wageningen. The rest of the museum consists of other exhibitions about the rise and existence of Wageningen.
