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

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.

This place is amazing. It's hidden behind tall walls but it's free and so well-maintained. Go here when there's nice weather and get awesome pictures

I used to live near here and whenever I return to Groningen I passby. The gardens are small but very pretty. Not that Groningen is a super busy town but in here it gets even more tranquil. Just sit on a bench an relax.

Having looked at them for 2 days from our hotel was nice to spend a couple of hours enjoy the solitude they offer
