Car puzzle tour Middle Groningen
Driving through Central Groningen, you will be amazed by the region's splendour. From countless characteristic oldambt and peat farms, landscapes arranged with the precision of the drawing board, watercourses that still have their origins in the ice ages, to impressive new rugged nature.
The Middle Groningen treasure house is also filled with many products and innovations that benefit Groningen, the rest of the Netherlands and people far and wide. This was the case in the distant past, it still is and will continue into the future.
Do you want to discover what this much-discussed, typical Groningen identity can bring about? Then let yourself be drawn into the story of Central Groningen; what has it produced and what will the future hold.
The car puzzle tour can be driven all year round, from Wednesdays to Sundays.
