Did the tourist walk through Groningen and came to this beautiful garden with great history. It has a Sun dial that is not only beautiful but also has an interesting design. Can picture the history and splendour in the prime of its time.

Stunning gardens attached to the Prinsenhof Hotel. Roses were still blooming even in mid-late September. Would be even more impressive in peak summer.

Beautifull little garden, nothing worth writing home about, but a very cute garden, where you can sit and have your lunch if you want and take a quick look.
