Located in the vibrant heart of Groningen, the Noorderplantsoen is much more than just a city park. In summer, you can chill out here and enjoy fun events like Noorderzon. It is also a great place for running, or for other sports, such as basketball and bootcamps, or you can enjoy good food on the terrace of or inside the lovely Zondag restaurant. Coffee to go? You can do that too at Zondag. The Noorderplantsoen opened its gates to the public in 1880 and has held a special place in the hearts of locals and tourists alike ever since.
The Noorderplantsoen is a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. You’ll find the park north of Groningen’s city centre. The cosy Oranjewijk, Noorderplantsoen neighbourhood and Hortusbuurt, which lie around the park, are also incredibly nice neighbourhoods to live or stay in during your holiday in Groningen.
The Noorderplantsoen has something for everyone. Children can have fun in the playground. Moreover, visitors are surrounded by beautiful ponds, which enhance the atmosphere of the park. It is a green oasis in the middle of the city.
