Groningen is a magnet for theater lovers. The city and province offer a wide variety of performances. From experimental dance to contemporary cabaret. Whatever you're looking for, you'll find it all in Groningen. The theaters themselves are often picturesque. Take for example the Grand Theatre on the Grote Markt or the stately Stadsschouwburg. Buildings full of history.
Groningen has a vibrant and diverse music scene. From an open stage in a neighborhood café to a well-filled festival meadow. Meanwhile, Groningen is a breeding ground for talents, and they offer them a podium to shine. Even international artists such as Dua Lipa and Sam Smith find their way to worldwide fame in Groningen.
The city of Groningen is home to several museums and galleries. The Groninger Museum is a must see for any art lover. But above all, take some time to visit a museum outside the city: from trains to teas and from 17th-century nobility to LEGO. In these museums you can look, do, taste, build and play.
The city of Groningen is teeming with events all year round. Eurosonic, Noorderzon, Paradigm, they are by now well-known in The Netherlands and abroad. But the surrounding area is also very active. Intimate performances in medieval churches. Or quirky artists in the Groningen village with an equally special name.
