This is a historical garden in the city centre that has been well preserved. It borders the Prinsenhof hotel, but is accessible to the general public. It has a tea garden. A good spot to be on a warm spring day.

Small but beautiful garden in the heart of Groningen. Suitable for romantic walks or those wanting to spend some time in peace.

On a sunny day, roses blooming, very beautiful. The sents and the views of the historic buildings around the garden are awsome.

I come here often. Every time I visit Groningen I have to go to Prinsenhof to see the herbs growing even in wintertime.

I took a small walk in the garden. It was clean, and tidy. Flowers and everytging were really beautiful. Perfect place to leave a bit the city, and take a peaceful walk, or just sit down for relaxing.

Not very big, but a nice 'green' place in the center of the city of Groningen. Nice gardens, actually quite romantic also. May and June may be the best months to visit in terms of nice flowers. You can also have a nice cup of tea there.

Loved visiting, beautiful and peaceful. Take time to sit on one of the benches to take it all in and to meditate for a while.

In fall/winter time the garden is worth a look for 15 to 30 minutes. I expect in spring/summer it will be more interesting.

You could walk right by this beautiful walled garden. We came in winter but would love to come back in summer.
