About this site

Purpose and structure of Groningen.nl

Welcome to Groningen.nl, your online point of entry to the city and province of Groningen.

This website is intended to help new residents and businesses - both Dutch and international - to find their way in Groningen.

We have designed the website with the user in mind, so we have combined both practical information relevant to setting up life in a new place, with more informal stories and articles to help you understand and engage with your new home.

We try not to repeat information which can be found elsewhere; we aim to provide an overview of reliable information already online, and to direct you to other websites which provide useful information about life in Groningen and the Netherlands.

The website is in this sense an experiment. If you have feedback on the navigation or you miss certain information, please let us know by sending an email to portal@marketinggroningen.nl

The website is owned jointly by the Municipality of Groningen and the Province of Groningen, and hosted by Marketing Groningen. It is made possible by the support of the Accord of Groningen.
