Perhaps you’ve heard the name before as the Noorderplantsoen is the location of the Noorderzon Performing Arts Festival that is organized in Groningen every year.
The long and small city park is very well suited for this as it allows for the performances to be spread over a wide space.
The park consists out of green strips along the 4 lengthy ponds that can be found in the park. With the 50 acres of green the Noorderplantsoen is a great way to leave the busy city life behind and have a relaxing afternoon. Accompany the Zonaanbidster (Sun Worshiper), the statue in the park as named by the public, sit back in the grass and enjoy the sunshine.
