Living in Groningen

Groningen. A jewel in a gold rim. Glorious regions full of strength through combining businesses. An ancient surrounding area with mudflats, mounds and waving grain. With your feet in the clay of the polders. Sailing along the seals on a bed of sand. In a sturdy, ancient church. Or somewhere on a side street of a side street, wandering through the city. Our space is our wealth. Here you can relax and come to life. You can truly enjoy living here. Nothing tops Groningen.
