Surrender to the unique vibes of the oldest university town in the Netherlands.
Featuring the oldest university in the Netherlands that dates back to 1614, Groningen is one of the country’s best-kept secrets, a lesser-known gem that patiently waits to be discovered. As with most university towns, Groningen’s charm lies in its lively ambiance, while its abundance of bars, cafés, and adorable tea shops render it the ideal destination for a trip that focuses on the authentic side of things. Apart from the magnificent university buildings, Groningen is home to many fascinating museums and a picture-perfect historical center with cobblestone lanes and impressive monuments, such as the 320-feet Martini Tower, the city’s tallest building.
Yet what’s truly captivating about Groningen is the quaint city’s reflection on the peaceful canals. Lined with beautifully decorated houseboats and old warehouses, Groningen’s canal-side lanes provide the perfect setting for a stroll that will make you feel as though you’ve stepped inside a Dutch painting. If, on the other hand, you are more of a modern art and architecture lover, the Groningen Museum’s controversial postmodern design won’t disappoint. As if Groningen’s many charms weren’t enough, the city’s location is perfect for those looking to venture out to the stunning Dutch countryside that sprawls around the picturesque university town.
