InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Groningen

Hello to all Americans in Groningen! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Groningen? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Groningen which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Groningen will surprise you. The largest city in the north of the Netherlands is a university city known for its historical architecture, fantastic museums, vibrant nightlife and culture, and much more! With the network of buses and cycle paths, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in Helpman or Oosterpoort, for example, which are just ten minutes away from Groningen’s center.

Although Groningen has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Groningen, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
