Scenic Viewpoint
“The Martinitoren (Martini Tower) is the highest church steeple in the city of Groningen. It is 97meters high and was completed in 1482. You can climb to the top (no elevators) and it gives you an amazing view of the city. Try to find your temporary home - as you can see it from there :-)”

“I highly recommend the " brakke brunch" on the Sunday. From 11.30 till 15u. For 13euro its " all you can eat" Its located at a nice square with an outside terrace. ”

“De Drie Gezusters isn’t the cheapest, it doesn’t provide the best quality drinks in town and the atmosphere can be a little crowded. So why visit? Because with its collection of twenty connected bars and 3750 person capacity, it’s the largest collective bar in Europe featuring beer taps. It can be found dominating the entire southern side of the Grote Markt. Visit it for the experience!”

“Dansje wagen? Dit is een leuke tent met zeer gevarieerde muziek. De gemiddelde leeftijd is ietsje hoger dan waar de meeste barretjes zich op focust (studenten).”

Church
“The largest church in Groningen, with its landmark tower, the Martinitoren. Located right next to the Grote Markt, a beautiful place to visit. At the base of the tower, you can enjoy a drink and a bite. About 15 min walk from the appartment.”
