Just for the days that you want a change of scenery or the city beach gets to crowded: there are more options for swimming in Groningen! You can check out this overview in Dutch and written especially for families with children to figure out what places there are to discover. We will make an English version as soon as possible.
For now: de Hoornseplas is one of the go-to swimming places in Groningen. It’s a twenty minute bike ride from de Grote Markt and you’ll find lots of water, sand and grass. Be aware of the nudist area, if you don’t like naked bodies it’s good to avoid. If you do like enjoying the sun and water in your birthday suit, that’s the place to be :).
