    Don't drive at night

    by Sprucebeer Updated Jan 25, 2005

    Arriving after dark, we weren’t sure we were going to find a hotel. We must have done the square with those 2 big roundabouts a dozen times. In and out of the city centre, passing the train station again and again.

    When you enter the centre, it seems like you can’t drive anywhere, or so if you don’t quite understand the signs, so you follow the route and ends up leading right back out of town LOL. Until eventually we started following other cars that seemed to go where we thought we were not allowed and landed right in front of the Best Western Cityhotel. There we stayed for the night.

    Now looking at this map looks like hotels surrounded us. Hehhehee serves us right for arriving at night.

    Just Walk

    by peaceness98 Written Feb 16, 2005

    The center of the city is quite compact (1 or 2 sq. km)
    Everything is within walking distance, and you get to spot more hidden secrets that way.

    It's by walking around that the same-sex and red light district locations were pointed out to me (not that I ever seemed to see anything interesting so far)

    The best way of transportation is cycling. The Dutch are known for their fondness of cycling. Even elderly people keep doing it!

    By train is very comfortable! Groningens' beautiful railway station is near the city centre. More in my TRAVELOGUE.

    Trainstation Groningen

    by jeoren Written Dec 19, 2005

    When travelling by train, one must certainly have a look at the ceiling of the trainstation in Groningen. It's one of the remarkable elements of this historic building.
