    Strange statue

    by martin_nl Updated Aug 27, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Right behind the Martini church you can find this weird statue. It probably has some meaning, but all I can figure out about it, is that his head is facing the wrong side of his body!!

    Strange statue isn't it?

    The Town Hall is a monumental neo-classical piece of architecture. The building was finished in 1810. The building is a bit simplified if compared to the original plans.

    The railway station is an impressive example of neo-Renaissance architecture. It was built in 1893-1896 and was designed by I. Gosschalk. Especially the interior is striking.

    The art in the Groninger Museum is modern art. Not everything is pretty, but I thought some things were rather nice, though I normally don't like modern art so much.
