Traveling to Groningen

Most travellers to Groningen book a flight to Amsterdam (AMS). There is a railway station at the airport, where you can take a direct train to Groningen. The ride to Groningen Central takes about 2 hours. You can plan your journey and buy tickets here.

For some flying directly to Groningen-Eelde Airport might be convenient. There are direct and daily flights from London Southend and Copenhagen.

From the railway station to the venue 'Provinciehuis'
From Groningen Central it takes 15 minutes to reach the venue by foot. See the map below. 

You can also take a bus and hop-off at bus stop 'Grote Markt'. You can take bus number 1, 3, 4 or 10. A bus is available every 10 minutes.  You can buy tickets in the bus, but please note that bus drivers are not eager to accept big notes (10,- 20,- or 50,- Euro)

From the Grote Markt you walk in 3 minutes to the Provinciehuis. You have to go to the entrance at the Sint Jansstraat number 4.
