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.
The trainstation looks beautiful and is a monument itself! More pictures are to be seen in the TRAVELLOGUE.
If you can, try and Kayak on the city's canals. Its a easy pleasant way to see the city. As long as you can get over the fact that the canals were originally used for sanitation purposes....(yuck).
This is an activity in Friesland....Cause Friesland is full of water. Even on the highways you can see a lot of lakes and seas. So sailing, swimming and things like that is what you have to do!
Groningen is one of the places they like the most in the Netherlands. Because the city is located in the far north of the country, most people think of it as 'far away' and hardly ever come here.
LOLLAND, one of the beautiful islands beside Groningen
white flying sand (the photo shows it,it´s sharp!), blue sky and some green bushes
This is one of the finest of the Groninger 'borgen' or fortified houses in the countryside. It has lovely gardens.
