This is one of Groningen's treasure troves, a beautifuly designed garden on the premises of a former Queen's Counsillor. The garden looks splendid and smells splendid, because of our the flowers, beautifully arranged. On the walled entrance there is a very beautiful sundial. There is an opportunity sitting outside and make use of the tea, coffee, icecream. lunch and wine... More

We were staying at the hotel and had a room over looking these gardens. Wandering around these gardens is lovely. There are impressive archways and beautifully manicured gardens. Worth a visit.

Yes, it's just a park. But it's also the old garden of the adjacent palace, in which nowadays the best hotel in town resides. It has a pitoresque "theeschenkerij", where you can enjoy modest drinks. It's an oasis in the hart of the city, a place where one can't be without wondering how life must have been for those allowed... More

This a great free attraction in the centre of Groningen. Beautifully maintained and colourful formal gardens where you can stroll or sit with a coffee.

This is a fragrant, romantic and colourful jewel of a garden, well worth a visit if you're in the area. It's not large so it won't take long if you're short of time. Visit the cafe and linger longer if you can.

I love this little garden. A wonderful Sunday morning walk. The roses are blooming and the walk around the garden is so relaxing. There is also a little cafe open even on Sunday morning if you'd like to set and relax.

These gardens are beautiful and well maintained. A peaceful place to walk in. We were staying at the Prinsenhof and visited the gardens everyday during our visit. The tulips were blooming in the garden and the colors were wonderful. The sundial was amazing, to be so old. The walkways are crushed seashell and what appears to be gravel. Easy to... More

These formal gardens and the sundial are really worth seeing. The Prinsenhof Hotel is taking over the catering, which should see some improvement and stability in the summer months (at the moment catering is not available in the winter months). A lovely place to while away some time!

I simply love the prinsenhof. Grown up in Groningen this has always been one off my favourite places to visit. Admitilly the winter isn't the best time to enjoy the rose beds but a nostalgic walk through the hedge tunnels always brings back memories. I was fortunate that it was a sunny winter morning and the sundial was as accurate... More
