From junction to junction
Biking from junction to junction around the cycling network will transport you to the most beautiful spots of panoramic Groningen. Take to the pedals and enjoy the wind in your hair. The sea dike, the ancient raised mounds, the gardens, the country houses and former forts. Or why not visit the friendly villages with their lovely patio cafés where you can take a break. Groningen is at the same time large and small enough for fantastic cycling trips. The cycling network organised in numbered junctions gives you all the freedom you need.
Gems not to be missed include: “Kiek over Diek”, “Molenaarsroute”, “Pieterpad” and “Mest en Vork route”. Have fun cycling!
So beautiful.. so close
The village of Termunten
The area around Termunten and Termunterzijl also features fun places of interest. A visit to the Cremer Pumping Station Museum should certainly be on your list. There, you can learn how people in these low-lying areas keep their feet dry. And while you’re in Termunten, don’t miss out on eating fresh fish at Landman Fish restaurant or the Westerhuis Vispaleis. Not to forget the seals at the Punt van Reide and the Second World War bunkers of Batterij Fiemel.
Closer to home, there’s also plenty to do. How about (indoor) swimming in Dubbelslag, Kardinge, Schildmeer, Gruno or Tropicana, climbing and clambering around Ballorig or the Adventurepark Waddenfun, trampolines at JumpXL, a visit to the petting zoo or DoeZoo Leens, a trip to the Muzee aquarium, climbing the Martini tower or taking in a film at the cinema.
Day out in the city
Nothing tops Groningen! After all, the city of Groningen offers all kinds of things to see and do. From unique museums to surprising shops and activities. Wander around the city and admire the places of interest to be found on many of its streets. Or take a boat tour, cycle the ‘Gasbelroute’, enjoy the ‘De stad van het Noorden’ city walk, climb the Martini tower or simply relax at one of the many patio cafés.
Delfzijl, a fortified town located between the Dollard and Wadden Sea, which invites you not only to come shopping, but also to savour, experience and discover its age-old relationship with the water, on the dike, on the beach, under the old gateway and in the harbour. A town full of adventurous stories. But also a town with an age-old bond with the sea. The shopping streets of Delfzijl are all the more special because of their location within the contours of the former fortifications. Delfzijl and its harbour are certainly worth a visit.
