Similar to the Folkingestraat, the ‘Oude Kijk’ is one of Groningen’s most special and surprising shopping streets. Today, entrepreneurs work in buildings that date from days long gone. Located in the academic heart of the city, students dominate the street scene of this lively spot.
The Oude Kijk in ‘t Jatstraat is one of those streets where you can shop till you drop. The speciality shops here are unparalleled. Even if you don’t really need any particular item, browsing the shops here is a lovely pastime. And feel free to browse; the shop owners are happy to oblige if you require any expert advice. With a shop selling games, a shop selling travel books, a vegetable and garden shop, interior design shop and various galleries and vintage shops, you’re not likely to experience boredom in the Oude Kijk.
Coffee breaks and lunch are serious business in the Oude Kijk, so be sure to enjoy your breakfast, coffee or lunch at one of the many coffee bars you find here. It’s also the place to be for a quick and healthy bite to eat. Have some yummy falafel or extensive themed salad, or opt for a vegan burger or just simply good food.
