    Hampshire Hotel

    by

    From my room in the Hampshire Hotel I had a nice view a church called St. Jozel Kerk, which was a block away to the southwest.

    This hotel is described as “formerly De Nieuwe Academie”, but I never did figure out what this New Academy is or was. In any case, there is still an attractive library (second photo) in the ground floor of the hotel next to the breakfast room. And they still seem to hold courses and seminars in the hotel sometimes.

    I booked this hotel through venere.com for an average price of 73 Euros per night for a large single room. Breakfast was 15 Euros extra, which I thought was a bit over-priced even though the breakfast buffet was not bad.

    Also I rented a bicycle from the hotel for 8 Euros per day. It would have been slightly cheaper to rent one at the station, but it was much more convenient to rent it from the hotel because I could just leave it there (in the parking garage in the basement) on my last morning when I checked out.

Hello Jertishny. What is your idea of good/inexpensive? Or rather: what kind of prices are you used to?

Travel Tips for Groningen

Warm Stroopwafels

by Emile72

Of course you can buy stroopwafels in any size in any supermarket throughout the Netherlands. But if you're in Groningen, try one of the 'fresh' made warm stroopwafels at the market at the "Groote Markt". They are delicious.

Party at the Three Sisters....

by Ballgame

Party at the Three Sisters. Huge . Multiple bars. Various types of music to dance to on many floors. Beautiful people all around. Alcohol,alcohol, alcohol! My best memory of Groningen was riding on the 'book rack' of my buddies bike as we cruised through town in a terrential rain storm trying to get home from one of the local 'coffee shops.'

art in Groningen

by tompt

When walking through Groningen you encounter many pieces of art. Some statues are recognised instantly, but others do make you think.

If you want to know more about the statues there are organised tours with an expert.
See the website: http://www.burohba.nl/excursie/
Or book through the v v v.

Times long gone by....

by sim1


Everywhere in the station building you can see signs that refer to times long gone by. Like this one for example in the main entrance. On the sign it says: "Wachtkamer 1e en 2e klasse, damessalon" = "Waiting room first and second class, ladies waiting room". They used to have separate classes for the waiting room. I just like all these little details, showing how different life was many years ago.

From new to old.....

by sim1


When you turn around from the "Smiling face", you will be going from the new times back to the old again. The clash between historic and modern seems to be at its maximum in this part of Groningen. Behind the lion sculpture you can see part of a wall of the art museum. The weathered look of the lion in combination with the smooth metal surface and strict lines behind it gives an interesting contrast.
