City Overview, Groningen        |        Image by guillermo gavilla

A historically important city, the origin of Groningen dates back to 1040, where it was founded in the Hondsrug area. It transformed into a significant trade centre in the 13th century and the Martini Tower, which is the most important piece of architecture in the city, was built at the end of the 15th century. In 1614, the University of Groningen was founded and brought with it an influx of students which would bring a whole new change. The onslaught of World War II damaged the main square and the Grotke Markt but the remaining structures escaped damage and they provide a rustic charm now.
