When Evelyn came back home from traveling around the world she noticed Groningen is very focused on the Dutch-speaking locals. And there just isn’t a lot of information for the English speaking visitors, locals and tourists. And she thinks that’s strange, because, we get a lot of international visitors every year and have a great amount of international students.

Groningen is a University City. Next to students and tourists, there are also a lot of ex-pats and international tourists visiting our city. So Evelyn started Inside Groningen together with college friend Diana.

Inside Groningen is a guide for international tourists, students, and ex-pats visiting Groningen. We also cover hotspots around Groningen, but we want to help out English spoken visitors and locals getting around Groningen.

About Groningen

In 2019 Groningen got highlighted as best places in Europe alongside the likes of major metropolises like Lisbon, Athens, Salzburg and Dusseldorf. Groningen was voted by CNN as “a winning alternative to Amsterdam”. So there’s a lot to win by starting this website.

What to find on Inside Groningen

Since Evelyn travels as a travel blogger a lot her herself, she knows what she wants to see and know when visiting a city for the first time.

On this website, you’ll find hotspots in Groningen. We’ll give you tips on what to do in Groningen, share comprehensive guides, and more. We also hired locals who write about their own neighbourhood, highlighting the best spots.
