LIVING

An apartment with a view of the historic city centre; a house with a garden in a charming village; living beside the water with a boat ready for sailing, or in a farmhouse with a panoramic view of the fields under those famous Dutch cloudy skies: this is all possible in and around Groningen. And another pleasant circumstance is the fact that all of this is affordable.

Vibrant city

A lively city, exciting culture, a busy nightlife and a rich history: Groningen has is all; 24 hours a day. It will come as no surprise that Groningen residents are among the happiest in the Netherlands. Add the fact that this is the region with the smallest amount of airborne particulate matter in the Netherlands and voilà: Groningen is the best place to be.

Good to know: the city centre is always easily accessible both by bike and public transport. This is where you find any conceivable shop and a friendly and extensive market. Enjoy your day off to the max and visit the historical monuments or museums with their wide selection of exhibitions, an evening out on the town at one of the fine restaurants, lively cafés or a musical or theatre performance. Indulge in your sports ambitions at one of the many gyms in the city.

The best places in town

Folkingestraat

The Folkingestraat is the most colourful and varied of streets and there is no place with friendlier places to eat, small boutiques and shops.

City park

The beautiful and undulating Stadspark city park is the place to train for the ultimate Groningen running event, the 4 miles of Groningen. 

Noorderplantsoen

The best thing to do in summer: a picnic in the Noorderplantsoen park. Experience that authentic Groningen feeling on a blanket on the playing field or at the pond surrounded by students. 

Vismarkt

Any fresh produce is available at the Vismarkt: from herbs, fish and meat to Dutch and exotic vegetables and fruit in an ever busy and friendly location. 

City beach

Cool off on warm days at the city beach in the Ebbingekwartier district (centre). 

Der Aa's

Nice and idyllic: walk over the cobbles and beside the boats along the Hoge and Lage der Aa canals.
