Here, colourfully painted houses blend in serenely with waterways and canals resembling Amsterdam or even Venice.
While on your holiday in Groningen accommodation, visit the Martini Tower and climb to the top.

Another impressive historical attraction is the Fraeylemaborg, a superb exhibition of the Dutch wealth ranging from the 1500’s to the 1800’s. Alongside a series of well-kept gardens, the ornamented inside of this building, which preserves the historical trappings several epochs in distinct room, is a masterful salute to the grandeur of European aristocracy: A destination that nobody could find dull.
If all this walking is making your feet hurt, however, there are a number of beautiful parks with ample green space and hedge work hearkening back to the middle ages that are close to Groningen accommodation. Also, don’t miss other historical attractions such as the University of Groningen, the Aa Church, and the Herestraat mall.
