About Inside Groningen

When I came back home from my year travel around the world – still used to talk and read English – I’ve noticed Groningen is focused on the Dutch. There just isn’t a lot of information for the English speaking visitors, locals and tourists out here and that seemed really odd to me. So I started Inside Groningen; a guide for
international tourists, students, and ex-pats visiting Groningen.

And this is just the right timing, because last year Groningen is highlighted as best places in Europe alongside the likes of major metropolises like Lisbon, Athens, Salzburg and Dusseldorf. Groningen was voted by CNN as “a winning alternative to Amsterdam”.

What to find on Inside Groningen

Groningen is a University City. Next to local students, we have a lot of international students visiting Groningen. But there are also a lot of ex-pats and international tourists visiting our city.
