by tompt

This house was originally used by de Broeders des Gemenenlevens as a sort of monastery. In 1568 the first bishop of Groningen was based here. In 1594 prince Maurits and count Willem Lodewijk made it their home after Groningen took the side of the reformation. And until the french took over the Prinsenhof was used as the palace of the Stadtholder. From 1808 to 1916 it was a militairy hospital. And now it is in use by Radio and TV Noord, the broadcasters of north netherlands, as their office.
