Groningen Things to Do: 145 reviews and 209 photos
When the main building of the university burned down in 1906 they only needed a short time(1907-1909) to built a new Academie gebouw. Because the university became larger and there were seperate instutes built the main building had a more representive function.
The design of J.A.W. Vrijman gives it a more representive look then the older much more static building. There are 5 figures in sandstone: Minerva, Scientia, Historic, Prudentia and Mathematica. They are depicting different studies: art, science, history, law, mathematics.
Address: Broerplein 4
