  The singels
by sim1

Favorite thing:
It is time to walk to the downtown area of Groningen. You can either turn right in front of the museum, follow the canal (called the "Winschoter Diep") and cross the bridge there to walk into the city centre. Or do like we did, cross the little bridge at the museum. Either way you will get to an area that is called "The Singels".

Although we are in the middle of the city, this is such a quiet part of town. In this street you can feel the history. The houses have great 'grandeur' and are wonderful to see. These houses are so expensive that they are not in use anymore as normal houses, but now often transformed into lawyer offices, dentist practices, etc, etc. They did do all this without ruining the look of the houses though.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
