Groningen : Michelin's recommendations


Groningen, with a population of about 200,000, is provincial capital and principal town of the northern region of the Netherlands. It is situated at one end of the Hondsrug, between a fine area of polders where cycling is a joy, and some ancient peat wetlands that are not without interest. With a young population, thanks to its university and several secondary schools, the town is particularly animated and attractive.
