Vigorous, authentic and unspoiled. This is Groningen: a city bursting with energy. Surrounded by countryside where the silence embraces you like an old friend. Step into a different world and enjoy Groningen to the fullest.
The city of Groningen features so many undiscovered gems. See works of art in unexpected places in the streets, lovely boutiques and small-scale high-quality restaurants very close to the main shopping streets. Walk a few steps further and venture into an almshouse to spend some quiet time alone. Enjoy a cold glass of beer at a local pub and learn more about Groningen culture. Who knows, maybe that friendly city resident sitting next to you has some tips for places to see and things to do.
Next to the city, Groningen is one of the oldest man-made landscapes in Europe and borders a UNESCO World Heritage site. Groningen in 1 day? No way. The province comprises seven regions, each with its very own character, places of interest and countryside.
