Most Cycling City Groningen, Holland

Updated on July 4, 2013

Besides cycling, Groningen is pretty much a typical Dutch city. With narrow roads, little churches delicious restaurants and cozy cafes.

You can get to the city by train, the station is located to the south form the city center. You can rent your first bike right on the station and don’t worry it won’t take you long as you can literally get to any part of the city in 20 minutes. If you decide to walk you’ll get tired, almost all buses go from the station to the center. If you decide to come during the summer I suggest you take a tour down the channel ring, this romantic trip starts at the pier next to the Groningen museum.

The history of the city is very common to any other city in the Netherlands. It was founded on the site of a Roman camp, by the way, it was the most northern point of Romans. In 1284 the city joined the Hansa. In the XV century, when the surrounding frieze came to terms with the fact that they are not completely independent, the real rise of urban life started. In 1672, the city withstood a siege by the troops of Munster Bishop van Galen, and the day of the siege, on August 28, is still celebrated as the Day of the city. Groningen was heavily bombed during the World War II, much of the historic center had to be rebuilt.

The most Cycling city in the world Groningen

This is how Grote Markt squares AREA got dominated by the Martini tower, 96 meters high, built in mid XV century. The tower belongs to the Church of St. Martin, who lived in France in the Tour, in the IV century, but later was declared the patron saint of the bishopric of Utrecht. Directly behind the tower is a small public garden Prinsenhof - a territory of the former monastery and Stadtholder residence and now a local TV.

And of course Groningen university – the place where most of the residence spend their days. This university is considered to be one of the best in the Netherlands, it has many different departments starting with math and ending with literature. This university is usually booked with beloved bicycles that make this building nice groovy atmosphere.

      No, all is not free here Vera, cut down images a bit and beef up the content, that's all you have to do to make it more appealing. That will help you for your future hubs as well.

      Thank you for the comment. There are about 500 words in the article. I think you are right, maybe there are too many pictures, I'll delete some. It's just that hubpages want's you to put as many as you have so I kind of lost it:)

      The hub was good but you could have pitched in some more information Vera. Too many pictures distract the attention. Pictures are outweighing the text, so keep that thing in mind.
