Groningen

The province of Groningen is not yet participating in Samen Blokje Omdenken.

Keep an eye on this page!

Groningen is known for its vastness, tranquility and openness. Yet her landscape is very varied; from the forests and stream valleys of Westerwolde to the scenic landscape of the Westerkwartier and from the mound villages and farmlands on the Hogeland to the Wadden coast, which is part of UNESCO World Heritage. This variation in landscapes makes the Groningen region an attractive walking area. According to The Nature Pyramid, one should visit nature in the region once a week to stay healthy; in Groningen there are plenty of opportunities to discover new places and landscapes!
