Consider coming a few days early: festivals in late August!

On the 28th of August Groningen has a local holiday and celebrates ‘Groningen Liberated’, or ‘Bommen Berend’ as we call it.
In 1672 the Siege of Groningen was fought during the Franco-Dutch war. On the 28th of August the victory was for the Dutch, avoiding the Bishop of Münster to conquer more of the Netherlands. On the 28th of August the city celebrates, with live music in the public spaces in the inner city, a fair, activities for children and a great show with fireworks.
