The best and most popular park in Groningen is Noorderplantsoen. We’re lucky enough to be living on the corner of the park seeing everything that happens in the park! Noorderplantsoen is great for chilling in summers, ice-skating in winters, and very popular for runners and sporters like basketball players and boxers.
Pre-corona, every summer there’s the Noorderzon festival: a curious combination of a cutting-edge international art festival and a large-scale summer fest for 135,000 visitors in Groningen. In 2021 Noorderzon will be held at August 12th, as long as circumstances permit it. Fingers crossed!
