For years, ‘t Feithhuis city café and restaurant has been the meeting-place for inhabitants and visitors to the city of Groningen. Located in the very heart of the city centre and near the Martini tower and Grote Markt square, ’t Feithhuis provides every option for a delicious breakfast, lunch, gathering or dinner. With the versatile offer of packages, ’t Feithhuis is the perfect location for weddings, celebrating a conferring or holding a company event. Historic and futuristic, classic and modern, regional and mondaine; these apparent contrasts come together in ’t Feithhuis. The old building with its modern design is just one example of this, as is the menu, which also includes ‘forgotten’ Dutch vegetables and preparations with a contemporary interpretation. Responsibly caught fish from remote compass points can be combined perfectly with regional products. Opening hours Monday through Sunday from 10.30 am until 10.30 pm
The footpath across the dyke by the Paterswoldseweg ends at a ‘look-out’, which provides hikers with a magnificent view of the Piccardthofplas lake. The ‘look-out’ consists of a big weathering steel ring. Nine plane-trees were planted within the ring, which will eventually provide the work of art with a shady green roof. The circle has two entrances with three-metre-high entrance gates. The use of material for the work of art fits in with the Lichtscherm (Light Screen) across the road because both works of art were created by the same artist: Noud de Wolf.

Artist Aryaan Harshage designed a bluestone floor decoration for the entrance of the public library. He placed two squares at the beginning and end of the access street from which various letters were cut away. The letters are mixed up on the first tile (in front of the entrance gate on the street side) and in the second tile they are neatly ordered from A to Z. The two diamond shapes are connected by two long and narrow bands, and perpendicular to these are two paths in front of the entrance toward the side of the entrance street in the direction of the wall. These lines emphasise the connection with the building’s architecture.
This land sculpture was designed by architect and artist Gunnar Daan. He was inspired by Emeritus Professor in biological psychiatry Rudy van den Hoofdakker, who is better known as poet Rutger Kopland. In 1966 Van den Hoofdakker published a thesis about sleep disorders, and Daan distilled the theme of sleep from this for his work or art featuring a sleeping woman, man, dog and cat. The figures are embedded in the slope and surrounded by a stainless steel rim. The steel functions as some kind of low profile (hence its title Low Profile ) filled with earth.
Three small living rooms – with lamps, a sofa, a table and even slippers – have been constructed by the water in a grass strip at the Boerhavelaan. They were designed by artist Lena van der Wal, who was looking to create domestic meeting places where local residents can go and visit each other in the street. Van der Wal was commissioned for this work by Groningen housing corporations De Huismeesters and Nijestee that wanted to do something back for the residents of the south-western quadrant in the Corpus den Hoorn neighbourhood to compensate for the inconvenience during a major district renewal.
The relationship between surface and spaces plays an important role in the work by Danish artist Per Kirkeby, and this also applies to this untitled work at the Emmasingel. The work consists of two rows of six columns connected crosswise as well as lengthwise using arch constructions. Wall surfaces are applied between some of the columns in such a way that a wall is positioned opposite every opening, resulting in a spatial line pattern of open and closed sections and changing light and shadow.

In 1990 the city of Groningen celebrated its 950 th anniversary and a contemporary city gate was placed at each main entrance road of the city to mark this. Architect Daniel Libeskind developed these city gates. At the Sprikkenburg by the Starkenborghkanaal channel is a city marking created by artist Gunnar Daan; a steel construction with two transparent stainless steel book leaves. These book leaves display the city of Groningen in two perspectives: the interior of the city and its exterior. The interior is displayed in the shape of a Stoa – an arcade – and the exterior in towers that fade into the space.

These four reed stems were designed by René de Boer, who used an existing well at the location of his design as a starting point: the ENT clinic of the Academisch Ziekenhuis Groningen hospital. The transformed the well into a square pond with a moving reed stem at each side. The four reed stems were made from welded brass. Their exterior is smooth and round while their interior has irregular and organic shapes. The whimsical transition from the round and austere exterior to the organic interior suggests a rupture in the stems. The stalks balance on weathering steel ‘holders’ with two points and move in the wind. In 1987 the ENT clinic was demolished after which the sculpture went into storage for a long time. Since then it has received a new location at the Oostersingel on the UMCG hospital grounds.
