Favorite thing:
Another typical house that you can see on the "Vismarkt". It is probably much newer than the previous ones you saw, but I like it because it is so funny and small :-))

Groningen is a city where you have to 'look up' a lot. The building are often very beautiful, but that only goes for the top part of them. Downstairs they are all taken over by shops, shops and more shops. And unfortunately those shops all look kind of the same; the charming character of the old houses is totally lost. But when you look up you can still the beauty of the city. The houses are well maintained and haven't lost much of their historic character. I think they are lovely to see.
