Historic city centre of Groningen

Hampshire hotel – Groningen Centre is on the edge of the historic city centre of Groningen. Just a stone’s throw away you will find a host of interesting, fun and attractive things to do. You can shop till you drop, enjoy café terraces and wander through the university city. Other suggestions for a day in Groningen and surroundings:

It can’t go unmentioned: the Groninger Museum. Be surprised by the special exhibitions and impressive art collection. In Brugstraat there are two historic buildings from the fifteenth century: the Gotische Huis and the Canterhuis. These buildings are the home of the Noordelijk Scheepvaartmuseum, where the history of shipping from the Middle Ages comes to life. To meet your comic strip heroes, you can visit Het Nederlands Stripmuseum Groningen; from Donald Duck to Jan, Jans en de Kinderen; they are all there.

Places of interest
If you walk up the steps of the 97-metre-high Martinitoren, you are rewarded with a beautiful view across the city, and with good weather even across the whole province. The city also has some thirty almshouses, the courtyards of every one being an oasis of peace. The former monastery Prinsenhof is an impressive complex situated in the Martinikerkhof. At the rear is the Prinsentuin, a beautiful renaissance garden full of roses and herbs.

In Familiepark Nienoord near castle Nienoord children can play in the playground, or take a ride on a horse, tractor or scooter. Another fun amusement park for the kids is Sprookjeshof in Zuidlaren. It has a playground, children’s farm, gnome-themed clamber castle and a covered section, so it’s also a great day out if the weather’s poor.

The province of Groningen offers stunning cycle trips. A beautiful trip is the Hoogeland discovery route (20 kilometres) through North Groningen. The trip to Hoornse Plas is also beautiful. The hotel has bicycles for hire.

“Big house for 6+ people with awesome views to water channel”

Awesome views from windows. Big terrace with kitchen table. Awesome appartment/house itself. Everything was of the very good quality inside. Good quiet location in the center WiFi is weak, can be better.

“Clean, modern hotel within walking distance of the action in Groningen”

I have been here for 6 days and am enjoying this location. The room is fine, modern, and clean. Noise levels are generally quite low. The breakfasts are quite good as well. I would stay here again if I were in Groningen. The only things negatives are the fact that the mirrors are placed for tall Dutch people, and the shower floor is so clean it is slippery, so be careful.

“walking distance to all attractions”

Our room was clean and staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good but almost the same everyday. Parking is 17 euros per night. Walking distance to all attractions and city centre was a great plus.

“Motogp weekend”

This was a really good stay. Clean and fresh hotel with friendly staff. The breakfast was good. Located in the beautiful center. About 10 minutes walk from the station. There was a bit nois from the outside with people talking loud and the sirens of police/ambulance in the night.

I stayed in the hotel for two nights. It is a very average hotel, but clean and well maintained and they offer you free tea or coffee in the morning. The room on the fifth floor was small but sufficient and the bed was ok. It was quiet and the wifi was free. Hotel has a parking garage for which I would suggest to make a reservation well in advance as it is not very spacious. BUt overall, coming again to Groningen, I will most probably select another hotel that has more character.
