As a lively university city, Groningen has the youngest average population in the Netherlands. It has a long and turbulent history, which becomes evident from the historic warehouses, courts and buildings. Groningen is also a city with nerve, with the most numerous examples of innovative architecture within its boundaries. In addition, it was once proclaimed the city with the best city center in the Netherlands because of its charm.
Experience all of this and explore Groningen! Groningen includes one of Europe’s oldest man‑made landscapes and borders a UNESCO World Heritage area.
