Don't skip the Weeshuis. It's one of Groningen most beautiful houses.
The Weeshuis (or Orphanage) was also known as the Rode Weeshuis (Red Orphanage). It was located between the Oude Ebbingestraat and the Oude Boteringestraat streets.
It dates from the 16th century and was located at the spot of a former convent and even further back in time on the spot of former farm houses. In 1599 the convent was converted into an orphanage, due to the high mortality figures of that time.
Address: Rode Weeshuisstraat - Groningen
