Korenbeurs

History and shopping combined in the Korenbeurs in Groningen

It’s no surprise that this impressive building from 1865 is one of the Top 100 UNESCO World Heritage sites in the Netherlands. Situated at the Vismarkt, the Korenbeurs (Corn Exchange) has in fact served for years as an exchange when the corn trade was flourishing in Groningen.

The building consists of an impressive front and exchange hall and on the roof you see the statues of Mercury, Neptune and Ceres which were respectively the gods of trade, the see and farming.

The statue houses a different kind of exchange these days, namely the supermarket Albert Heijn.
