The Grote Markt is still a place where actual weekly markets are organized. From the general market on Tuesday to the non-food market on Thursday, not to mention the goods on offer in the weekend.
Surrounding the Grote Markt you find a variety of bars and restaurants which are obviously a popular nightlife destination among the students, but also make for a nice place to relax, sit back and enjoy the rest of the people discovering the city of Groningen.
Two impressive buildings at the Grote Markt are the Martinitoren on the east side and the City Hall on the west side. The first you can actually climb to get an even better view of the city.
