Absolutely beautiful garden adjacent to the Prinsenhof Hotel. Everything is perfectly manicured, complete with sculptured box hedges and arbours. January is of course not the ideal time to visit, but even then, the winter flowers (pansies) were blooming and the bulbs are beginning to break...More

A tranquil oasis on the edge of the city centre with a number of distinct areas of differently themed formal gardens all very well maintained. Highlight for me were the 2 round and interlinked berceau.

Strictly speaking it is a 1930s reconstruction of the original garden based on a 1634 map. Still the result is very charming and beautiful. Renaissance style, with different perks. The only drawback is that the benches are all at one side near the wall.

It is a very nice place to spend some time if you are in Groningen. Beautifull rose gardens, nice flowers, herbs and spice examples. You will enjoy it!

The gardens are kept immaculate and are beautiful to look at. Good for a walk or having a tea/coffee in the little cafe inside of the garden- if it is open. The garden is not that big but a quiet oasis in a buzzing town....More
