Imposing, magnificent, monumental and yet brimming with life

The Academy Building at the University of Groningen is one of the most astonishing buildings in the city centre. it is the historic heart of academic Groningen, the centre of the "Illustrious School", as the university was called at its foundation in 1614.

The building itself is much younger than its appearance suggests. Although opened in 1909, it tells a special story that goes back before 1614. The Neo-Renaissance architecture contains numerous references to a rich academic past, closely intertwined with that of the city and the province. The building is also a treasure trove of venerable cultural and historical objects, yet also conveying a sense of the present-day, increasingly international life of the university.

Welcome to a remarkable building.
