Now this is what I call a proper houseboat!
The Martini Church overlooks the market place.
The 15th century Martini Tower is Groningen's pride, and it is known locally as "Old Grey". It is 97 metres tall and is open for visitors to climb, but we have done enough climbing of towers!
The other side of the square is dominated by the City Hall.
This Neoclassic building dates from 1810.
People come to Groningen by train, then use their cycles to get to work in the city.
Inside the station entrance hall, have a look at the roof! The ornaments on the roof are made from papier mache.
Here we are in Prinsenhoftuin. This Renaissance style garden was laid out in 1625, and the colours of the flower beds were very striking. There are herb gardens here too.
This cat was thirsty, but managed not to fall in to the canal! This was right in the middle of Groningen.
As we leave Groningen, there is a real contrast between the modern housing, and the traditional house boats and barges on the canal.
Zernikebrug is a very stylish lift bridge on the way out of Groningen.
