The reason of us being in Groningen is because we came to drop our daughter to this university. Best Academia, and catching up fast with colleagues like Oxford, Cambridge & LSE.

A must. Great displays of nature and science going through time. Displays of skulls and other human remains. Free entrance.

If you end up in Groningen, you certainly must visit the old university building in the centre. It is very well preserved and has an amazing atmosphere. Go there in a weekday so you can dive in the student vibe.

A very nice building in the heart of this wonderful students city! After having seen that, I would like to restart my studies (probably here)!

This is an agreeable specialist museum, graced by a replica of Ben Feringa's Nobel Prize Medal. The museum gives a fascinating insight into the development of the University of Groningen and the vibrant life around it.

The museum is a great way to see some history. The areas of history covered varies a lot, and the exhibition is quite small. Still a good place to go for a quick history lesson.

We have been visiting Groningen for a day and also stopped here, the building is already worth to have a look from outside! See for yourself 😀

outside and inside: it's a "living legend"! It is an inspiring location, especially for the soon to graduate students. The surroundings are also a must see: bars and pubs and bike parkinglots!

The University museum has a small but interesting exhibition presenting works of RUG researchers. It will take less than an hour to see it all but it is definitely worth a visit and the entrance is free for all.
