Excursion to the fortified town of Bourtange

The week of 13 – 17 November is the Week of the International Student! Therefore, ESN Groningen and the Provincie Groningen organise a day trip to Bourtange. This fortified town, located near the German border, is rich in history and due to its cobblestone roads, canons and wooden drawbridges, you feel like you wander back in time! The day trip includes a guided tour, lunch and activities such as archery, air bux shooting, throwing hayforks and horseshoes. The excursion starts 11.45 at the station of Groningen, at 18.00 we'll be back. This all for only €10,-, also for non-ESN card holders! Get your ticket online or at the ESN Office (Pelsterstraat 23, Mon-Fri: 13.00-16.00, Thu: till 19.00). The ticket sale starts on Monday the 6th of November!
