Unlike Amsterdam, Groningen isn’t that big of a city. There’s just one city centre which can be visited in one day if you need to. Everything is quite centrally located and most of the hotspots of Groningen can be found in the centre like the Martini Tower, the Groningen Museum and cute almshouse courtyards.
