City of Groningen
Groningen is with over 200,000 inhabitants the largest city in the northern part of the Netherlands. As a lively university city, Groningen has the youngest average population in the Netherlands. Maybe that’s one of the main reasons that nowhere in the world cycling is as popular as in Groningen – more than 60% of all traffic movement is by bicycle. For decades, the bicycle has played a central role in the lives of people in the city. Groningen’s cycling conditions are ideal – a compact and flat city with short cycling distances. The climate is favorable, the air is clean and above all, Groningen is safe!
