De Prinsentuin G R O N I N G E N
Quiet Sunday Mornings
welcome to T H E P R I N S E N T U I N Est. 1626
On Sunday morning I met my sister Inge for a stroll in the Prinsentuin in Groningen...
This is a view of the garden from restaurant de Prinsenhof where we first ordered a cappuccino before we headed out into the sun...
flowers are abundant in summer
The Prinsentuin is hidden behind old walls and small laborers cottages. It has a lovely view of the Martini tower.

Peace and Quiet
The Prinsentuin is the perfect place to hide with a good read and to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.
The Prinsenhof belonged to Stadtholder Willem Frederik and his wife Albertine Agnes.
We sauntered through the garden and the maze before we strolled to the herb garden for some tea...
At the Prinsentuin they serve tea, grilled cheese sandwiches and Dutch apple pie with whipped cream.
Every year, the Prinsentuin hosts a poetry festival. Poems decorate the garden.
Apart from roses and herbs, the Prinsentuin is also home to fruit treas.
It was time to leave the tranquility of the Prinsentuin. We spent a lovely morning there, chitchatting, sauntering, sipping tea and admiring the bounty of nature in the city...
This quiet Sunday activity was kindly brought to you by the sisters Inge & Judith from
