Beautiful little gem

I found this lovely place on the recommendation of a local shopkeeper. I really enjoyed walking around here and taking photos. It's very picturesque. I love the sundial.

The gardens are very well conserved. The bush and flowers were beautiful. There is a sun clock still working that is cool to see

Small but very pretty. Quiet and relaxing. You can sit at one of the tables and have a drink there and listen to the church bells. They go on and on at the 12 o'clock noon ringing.

The Prinsenhof Gardens are located with the Old City of Groningen. Consider them a jewel withing a busy city. On the day I visited the roses were "off", but that did not diminish the ability to appreciate them. Many flowers, paths, and the opportunity to enjoy a combination of art and nature. Please visit.

Beautiful garden with lovely roses, lavender and other fragrant flowers and herbs. I would rather keep this place a secret to avoid overcrowding.....

It reminds me of the secret gardens from classic literature. If you are unable to find the garden, just ask one of the waiters at the prinsenhof cafe, who will direct you to a plain white door and behind it lies this beautiful garden. They also have a cafe in this garden. Good place to enjoy the greenery and beautiful... More

Something complete obscuring the city centre. It had a very calm atmosphere. Sadly it was fall when i was here and i intend to visit again soon in the spring or summer

I went there for a walk with my partner. There is a café inside and it is surrounded by lovely flowers. It was a very romantic little spot in the middle of the city center.
