It is located hidden away, accesible from the street alongside the canal on the city-centre-side of the canal, it is on the north-east side of the city centre. You can enjoy the vegetation or have a drink or something to eat. There is a limited amount of drinks and food available.

We stumble upon this garden by accident while walking around Groningen. We were visiting near the spring time so is very nice to take pics of the garden. There is also a small cafe inside of the garden.

This is a nice little walled garden. It had a really impressive sun dial above the entrance but I couldn't figure out how it works as the explanation is in Dutch. It had a seated area and a little coffee shop which is great for a break and to soak it in on a nice day.

Between 10 and 17 h the Prinsentuin is open to the public. We visited at the beginning of spring season, so not all hedges had leaves. You can recognize the letters W A for Willem Alexander, the Dutch current king. There is also a tea house, but that was not open on Sunday the time we visited. I like to... More

A charming garden which is perfect on a fine day to enjoy your sandwiches. In early March there is not much to see, but in Spring and summer it will be a delightful spot when the roses are out. Typically orderly and clean in true Dutch style.

Although I was there in winter and didn't even get to see flowers. HOWEVER the gardens are arranged beautifully and have a special taste when covered by the winter frost. I loved this place and I'm hopeful to be there in summer.

It is a nice garden to go and relax in spring/summer but during the winter it is not worth it. Also not too many flowers, quite small.

Prinsenhof Gardens were one of my favorite spots during summer! Of course they're more beautiful and greener during spring compared to the cold winters. Don't expect a huge walk though... Probably it's 5-10 minutes around the gardens. Don't skip the tea house in the gardens!!! It's so quiet and just in the middle of the city! Try the vanilla tsai... More

We found this garden by chance while out walking along the canal. It's like the secret garden. Beautiful flowers, roses and lavender which you could smell while walking through. There is a small green where a few tables are set out among the trees. There is a little cafe selling soup, toasties and beautiful cheesecake and custard tart. Great way... More
