Welcome in the congress town of Groningen. We wish you a very successful congress in our beautiful city, which is almost 1000 years old and is surrounded by the beautiful northern part of The Netherlands.

The city of Groningen and surroundings have a very rich history, has a prominent place in the current Kingdom of the Netherlands and is energetically working on their future.  Cooperation and trust between local government, educational institutions and the business community are key words.

The city of Groningen is incredibly beautiful with an historical center city, surrounded by water.  Along with the presence of tens of thousands of students, who study at the University of Groningen and the Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen is a very happening city.  Not only does it have a rich cultural life, but also numerous outside cafés and restaurants that make our city extremely attractive.  A city walking tour lead by one of our guides, possibly followed by a cruise through the canals or the climbing of the almost 100 hundred meter high Martini Tower, your guests really should not miss this.

The surrounding area of the city of Groningen is also inviting for a visit.  This is a difficult choice to make, because there is so much to choose from.  From Giethoorn (the Venice of the North), up to the Wadden Sea (Unesco World Heritage), from the historical fortress town of Bourtange to playing a round of golf at the top golf course in the northern part of the Netherlands, it is all very worthwhile.
