Tranquility in the city center

Loved visiting, beautiful and peaceful. Take time to sit on one of the benches to take it all in and to meditate for a while.

In fall/winter time the garden is worth a look for 15 to 30 minutes. I expect in spring/summer it will be more interesting.

You could walk right by this beautiful walled garden. We came in winter but would love to come back in summer.

It is a jewel of a garden. Probably the best kept public garden in The Netherlands. Very nice to stroll in and to sit quietly. When you are on 'de Groote Markt' simply follow the small signs in black and brass. They will bring you there via the Martinikerkhof. And that is a beautifull place also.

I went there with a friend and enjoyed the rare sunny day sitting in the garden area, having coffee. I dont think you can really enjoy the garden when it is cold or rainy but you can still try. For the coffee shop, you have to go and order what you want, pay immediately and than go back to your... More

It is just a couple of minutes walking from Martinitoren and busy Market Square. But the atmosphere is already totally different. I went there on a hot sunny day and the garden makes me so peaceful and relax. A true beauty of the city if you are looking for a small place to walk around and run away from crowd.

Just outside the city centre there is this garden, there's a wall around it, so you don't see it at once, but it is worth a visit. Take a walk around the garden en sit on a bench and just enjoy the quiet in the middle of the city bustle or have a cup of tea at the teahouse.

Not that many people know about this place. I consider it a great place to get away from the crowd. It has a nice teahouse and you can stroll through the lovely garden.

We had a car in Groningen and were fortunate to find a small parking space just across the road from the entrance next to the canal. This is a quiet and restful place right in the middle of a busy city, and the high walls ensure that you can relax in peace. While we did not spend much time here,... More
