NL-4865312

I've been twice to the Netherlands but Groningen was never part of my plans and to be honest, didn't know much about the city. This card gave me an excuse to learn a bit about it. 

Groningen, capital of the eponymous province in the northern part of Holland, is a lively city that has much to offer in terms of culture and events, beautiful historic monuments like the Martini Tower, great shopping districts for a wonderful shopping spree, and excellent restaurants. - inhttps://www.holland.com

On this view of the city center there's a building that stands out. With its austere silhouette, the 45-metre high distinctive Forum with ten floors and a roof garden has become a permanent part of the city skyline. Forum focuses on amazing and inspiring people through Storyworld, 5 cinemas, the Smartlab, cafés and restaurants, the city library and the highest terrace in Groningen with a phenomenal view and a rooftop cinema. - in: https://www.visitgroningen.nl
The Forum terrace may offer great views of the city but I'd rather climb the 260 steps of the Martinitoren, on the right side of the card.
