Suggestions for you stay
Groningen is the largest city in the North of the Netherlands with about 203.00 inhabitants. This city has a lot to offer!
The University of Groningen was founded in 1614 and initially only for religious education. In the same period the city expanded rapidly and a new city wall was built. That same city wall was tested during the Third Anglo-Dutch War in 1672, when the city was attacked fiercely by the Bishop of Münster, Bernhard von Galen. The city walls resisted!
This event is celebrated yearly as "Gronings Ontzet" or "Bommen Berend" with music and fireworks on August the 28th.
Social activities / exhibitions / restaurants
Art pervades the city, even in the train station with its magnificent stained glass windows. The city's landmark is the Martini tower which has overlooked the city for over 500 years. Visitors can climb this fourth-highest tower of the Netherlands up to the third gallery to get a spectacular view across the city. Adjoining the tower is the Martini church. It originates from approximately 1230 AD and contains frescos from the 13th century and one of the largest Baroque organs in northwest Europe.
Groningen has a considerable amount of modern architecture that goes hand in hand with historic architecture. There is an Italian link, proven by the fact that many of the most remarkable buildings in the city were designed by Italians.
There are a lot of museums in Groningen but the showpiece of Groningen museums is undoubtedly the Groninger Museum; its striking pavilions designed by architects such as Alessandro Mendini and Philippe Starck are opposite to the central railway and bus station. This museum has a sensational brightly coloured interior and wonderful exhibitions, including a permanent collection.
The Forum Groningen is an independent foundation, responsible for all activities that take place at the building of the same name.
The Forumbuilding located in the heart of Groningen is a meeting place for everyone who is curious about tomorrow's possibilities in today's world. With international exhibitions, the Storyworld museum, a cinema, the public library, a Smartlab, a skylounge bar + restaurant and a roof terrace with a phenomenal panoramic view, you are bound to be surprised!
A tour through the old channels of Groningen is one of the most popular excursions. You are given a unique opportunity to admire the many magnificent patrician houses and the towers of the town with their centuries of history.
Groningen is a university city which becomes evident in the evenings. The city centre is great fun and crowded each night of the week, providing an excellent and varied choice of restaurants, cafes, theatres, and cinemas. Time flies in Groningen as there are no fixed closing hours.
In particular the Ellebogenbuurt has a high density of attractive restaurants and cafes, where quiet pubs alternate with bustling student pubs. The south side of the Grote Markt houses an enormous complex of linked pubs and discotheques, and there is live music in the centre every evening.
More touristic information is available at the Tourist Information Office.
The office is located in The Forum.
