Our next stop was a town called Groningen. Over half the population travels to school and work by bike according to the travel book......and I believe it! Bikes everywhere......so I took one out from our hotel and rode with the locals. It is home to a university founded in 1614, which is on the right above.
On the left is the train station.
We stayed for 5 nights so I got pretty comfortable riding around the town.
This garden is called Prinsenhof it has a sundial from 1730 and is still laid out the same as it was in the 18th century.
Sadly, the huge museum in town was closed for renovations :0(
It stands on a island in the 19th century Verbindingskanaal ( canal)...the museum opened in 1994 and I wonder why it already needs renovations?
