Nice oasis in the city

Nice gardens, just a little oasis in the middle of Groningen. We went there during our city walk, these gardens were a nice suprise.

Great gardens with a quaint little tea shop in the middle of it all. Good place to take a book and spend some time away from the noise.

It's a very pretty garden, but its super small. I was honestly disappointed by the size. I think it took no more than 10 minutes to walk the entire garden. But it was very nice and relaxing getting to walk under arches, look and smell the roses. Theres a cafe there which is really great.

Escape the city life and find peace in this beautiful garden. Smell the roses or drink a nice cup of tea at the little drinks stand. Or visit one of their poetry festivals.

From March up until late autumn it is very pleasant to spend some times in this little well kept garden. It is beautifully laid out with formal designs and they also have indicated the names of the plants and trees. On nice days it is very nice to sit outside and drink a tea from the tea house located in... More

One of the best manicured garden I have seen. The garden is bang close to Martini church. It is also next to Prinsenhof hotel and restaurant

Very peaceful and well kept garden in middle of the town. Sitting in this garden feels like being in a totally different world. Only trouble is that it's fairly small, so it's no good for a good stroll or something like that.

Absolutely lovely garden! There is a teahouse inside the garden where you can enjoy a cup of tea and the tart of the day while admiring the beautiful surroundings!

Found this little garden (eventually!) maps were a bit misleading! Very pleasant gardens, need to come back when all the roses are in full bloom to fully appreciate it. The day was fairly sunny so we enjoyed a drink and a slice each of the 'cake of the day' in the lovely setting. Well worth a visit, great that there... More
