City of Groningen

Groningen, the biggest city of the northern Netherlands, is a lively university city with a long and turbulent history. It was once proclaimed the city with the best city centre in the Netherlands because of its charm. Cycling is enormously encouraged via severe restrictions on car movement in the city centre and investment in cycling infrastructure. Thanks to these regulations, the city remains a peaceful place, refreshingly free of traffic and pollution. The ‘Grote Markt’ with its many outdoor cafés in summer, the authentic Martinitoren, and the charming canals give Groningen its unique energy.
