Located on the Northern coast of the Netherlands, Groningen is the lively provincial capital with its well attended markets and shops and its great variety of pubs and restaurants. Due to the enormous amount of students (55.000 out of a population of 190.000 inhabitants), Groningen is known as the “youngest” city in Holland. This explaines why Groningen has an highly attractive nightlife scene. The city is also the cultural heart of Northern Netherlands with its museums, theatres and numerous festivals. See the traces of its rich past in addition to new high-profile and architectural buildings, like the famous Groningen Museum by the architect Mendini .
Rich in culture, history and architecture, young, open and hospitable, right on top of everything. Groningen will grab you immediately.
