As many Dutch cities, Groningen has beautiful canals around the centre. From the 1st of April until the 1st of Oktober it's possible to hire a canoe and paddle around the centre. It's a round trip that gives you a totally different view of Groningen since you are lower than the streets and you can pass very close along the many house boats in the city. Some bridges have a secret 'roof' that can only be seen when you pass under the bridge (or if you're standing at the right side when the bridge opens vertically). A tour around the centre takes about 1 - 2 hours, depending on how fit you are, how many stops you take for photo shootings, and water battles. 

Location: Oosterbrug  (coming from the centre it's on the right side of the bridge, walk to the middle of the bridge and then down the stairs)
