    The bus

    There are a lot of busses going througout the whole province. But they don't go that often at times (specially evenings and weekends) so beware that when you take a bus somewhere, you will be able to get back again.

    Here is a website with all the busses in the province : http://www.noordned-ov.nl/
    Unfortunately this website is only in Dutch. But if you need help finding the right bus, don't hesitate to ask me :-)

    As most people probably don't know where Groningen is, except for the Dutch people of course ;-) I've added this little map of the Netherlands. As you can see on the map, Groningen is in the north of the Netherlands.

    The train

    There are a few trains running through the Province :
    From Groningen to Delfzijl
    From Groningen to Roodeschool
    From Groningen to Nieuweschans

    From Groningen there is an easy connection to the rest of the country.

    The Dutch train, called NS ,has a good website where you can find all the information about departure times, length of the journey, etc.

    Don't rely on public transport too much

    by OlafS Updated Sep 26, 2003

    The province of Groningen is quite big, but not densely populated. There are many small villages. And thus, public transport isn't very good. Oh, you can reach (almost) any place by bus, but you may have to wait a little too long to be able to leave again. The same goes for trains; these stop in various places, although most of the province isn't covered by tracks, but the frequency can be a bit low. Not bad if you only visit one or two places, but if you, like me, would like to see all those churches I recommend renting a car. A bike can be nice too and also gives you the opportunity to see a lot. But roads can be narrow and you just might have to share them with big agricultural tractors.

    Nostalgic bus routes

    by ATLC Written Aug 23, 2008

    A nostalgic bus brings you to places of interest during the May school holidays and during the summer (July and August). You can go to attractions in Emmen (zoo), Exloo, Borger (giant dolmen), Drouwen, Assen (Drents Museum, Traffic park), Appelscha, Pieterburen, Eenrum, Leens, Houwerzijl and the city Groningen. There are stops at campings and holiday parks.

    For the Province Groningen you can find the schedule here.

    A day-ticket only costs 5 euro. But if you're staying at any one of these holiday accommodations then your day-ticket costs only 2 euro!

    Click here for the attractions where the Toerbus brings you.

    Take your pick!

    Any which way you choose to transport yourself, we have seen most of them!
    Especially in early spring, when first rides are made to see if the vehicle still works, it is fun to go for a ride and go spotting means of transportation.
    Like I did this April 1st .. too bad camera went low on battery lol missed several!!

    Man on moped, there were 3 of them, but I missed 2 2 grandpas: one in elec wheelchair, other scooter What s this? Quad or trike? Solved! Norway has come to join the parade! ;)
