Next Thursday, October 3, the ”Tag der Deutschen Einheit” will be celebrated in Germany. Therefore, Groninger Marktendag has been organised especially for German visitors here in Groningen, by the Groningen City Club, the Municipality of Groningen and Marketing Groningen. This day will consist of various local markets, and will also have a children’s program.

German national holiday
The Tag der Deutschen Einheit is the day which Germans celebrate the anniversary of German reunification and most have the day off. An excellent opportunity to visit Groningen!
The Groninger Marktendag can be found on the Grote Markt, between both markets and on the Vismarkt. It is a collection of successful Groninger Markets including a commodities market, vintage and handmade products market, stand workers, a fish square, and a market with products from Groningen soil and the provincial square. During the markets there is music, food, drinks and a children’s program from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
New on Groninger Marktendag is the provincial square on the Grote Markt where all seven regions of the province present themselves. The regions are represented by, among others, a number of entrepreneurs from the region concerned and they introduce visitors to all kinds of delicacies, tastings and activities from the province.
Visitors who come by car should park on a P + R and then come to the city by bus. Parking is free and the bus to the centre costs € 6, with a maximum of 5 people. For more information about parking and up-to-date travel information, see www.groningeneachbaar.nl.
