Hampshire Hotel - City Groningen is the ideal base for a weekend exploring Groningen and its surroundings. It is located close to the central station, so easily accessible with all the city's hotspots nearby. You can hire a bicycle at the hotel and explore the city. Cycle through the centre with its historic warehouses, courtyards and buildings, past the Martini Tower towards the Grote Markt and see Groningen at its best.
The Groninger Museum is an absolute must. The museum has a wonderful collection of its own and also hosts special touring exhibitions. The building is an artwork in itself. It was designed by several well-known architects, including Allessandro Mendini.
There is also lots to see outside the city. You could go to Pieterburen, for example, to visit the seal nursery, or spend an afternoon walking on the tidal marshes. Back at the Hampshire Hotel - City Groningen, it's time to relax in the sauna followed by a lovely meal in one of the local restaurants.
We can offer 3 possibilities. Our private hotel garage within walking distance can be reserved at the hotel for € 17,50 per night (based on availability), you can drive in and out multiple times. An alternative opposite the hotel is the garage from the Holland Casino, for € 22,50 (instead of 45, -) per uninterrupted night if you buy the drive out ticket at the hotel. A more profitable alternative is a Park & Ride. At 4 of the 5 ‘P+R Parking Lots’ you only pay for the bus to the city centre. The hotel can give you more information and answer further questions.
