Groningen Car Hire

Groningen has been around since about 1100 AD, it is a city with a lot of history behind it, history which you can best appreciate with our Groningen car hire services. The city has had a university since 1614 and nowadays is definitely a university town sporting a high student population.

If you fly into the city you will be landing at Groningen Airport and once there you can take advantage of our great Groningen car rental services and have the car ready for you at the airport. Driving in the city however might not be ideal, especially in the center since it is a medieval city and this is the Netherlands we are talking about, there is a central canal ring around the old center and driving and especially parking is very restricted within that area.

Most of the sights in Groningen are within walking or biking distance of the old center so you can use the car to explore the surrounding or travel to nearby cities.

Once in the old town you can visit the Groninger Museum, the building itself features spectacular architecture and it exhibits the latest and best examples of contemporary art in the world, in fact it has one of the top five progressive art collections in the world.

There is also the Scheepvaartmuseum which is a museum dedicated to the history and role of water transport up until the 1970′s, this museum is located nearby the Tabakmuseum or Tobacco Museum.

The city also has a synagogue and the Aa-kerk – a beautiful church from the Middle Ages – which might require some attention from visitors, and then there are the Grote Markt and the Vismarkt, the great market and fish market respectively, two large market squares in the center of the city.

The city center also has a couple late-medieval Guest Houses whose courtyards can be visited for free during the daytime however you have to keep in mind that these houses are inhabited and the people living in them enjoy their quiet and privacy.

Even if you don’t want to rent a car for use in Groningen, you can always use our Groningen offices to drop off a car that you hired from a different city.
