Shopping

Special shops in medieval buildings

We’d like to show off the following quote from CNN about Groningen: “a winning alternative to Amsterdam.” And rightfully so. In the compact city center you will find large brands next to experimental small shops and luxury vendors next to vintage stores. Stroll through the shopping streets consisting of many old houses or explore the regional markets and cozy village centers in the surrounding area.
