The Hunnerberg is a district and Pleistocene moraine on the banks of the Waal river in Nijmegen. Its position along the Waal makes this low hill, just like the nearby Kops Plateau, a very strategic location. This is evident from the many archaeological finds, including two Roman castra with a Roman aqueduct, but also from many finds from the late Neolithic, Bronze Age and middle and late Iron Age. Excavations during construction work revealed that Fort Sterreschans was built on the remains of a camp of the Tenth Legion. In the Hunnerberg district, streets were named after Charles Estourgie, Eugène Lücker and Claas Noorduijn, among others.
