Grote Markt square

Located in the Grote Markt are two of the city’s most iconic buildings; the Martinitoren and city hall. The Martinitoren – or Martini Tower – is the tallest building in the city which stands at 100m. The tower is open for visitors to climb to the top and see the best views of the city. On Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays merchants come to the square in order to sell various foods such as meat, fish, cheese, fruit and vegetables. Grote Markt square is also an ideal spot to stop for something to eat or drink with plenty of options to choose from.

Hortus Haren

Dating back to the 17th century, Hortus Haren was one of the first botanical gardens to be established in Holland. Home to fifteen different gardens spread across 20 acres of land, Hortus Haren is the perfect place to spend an afternoon in Groningen. One of the gardens which has been created is a Chinese garden, where you can see a recreation of a Chinese Mandarin’s Feng Shui garden. The Hortus Harem also boasts an insectarium, an apiary and greenhouses to visit.

The Wadden Sea

The Wadden Sea is so spectacular that it was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009. The landscape formed around 7000 thousand years ago and has two very different states. First everywhere is covered by water, and in what feels like moments later you are able to walk along the seabed as the tide goes out. The floods from the North Sea which happen twice a day means that it is the perfect environment for fish, birds and seals to live in, well worth seeing.

The Groninger Museum

The eye-catching architecture by Mendini makes the Groninger Museum a sight hard to miss, made up of bright colours and varied materals. In one of the city of Groningen’s top attractions you can see the collection of porcelain which is on exhibition permanently plus many other exhibitions. The museum also has exhibitions on fashion, photography, design and paintings to witness.
