Public Transportation in Groningen - Qbuzz

Groningen's local public transport company, Qbuzz, has generously offered free public transportation to attendees to and from local hotels to the Martiniplaza as well as throughout the City of Groningen. Please make sure to have your EUSARF Conference Name Badge as it is your ticket to ride. For more information regarding which routes service Martiniplaza (conference location), please ask your hotel's front desk.


To get to the Martiniplaza:
Martiniplaza is conveniently located on the A7 motorway (Amsterdam/Drachten, Hoogezand/Germany) near the A28 junction (Assen/Zwolle). Martiniplaza can be reached by a line-6 city bus from the Central Railway Station heading for Hoornsemeer, and by the regional coach-lines 81, 82, and 85. Martiniplaza is situated at a walking distance of approximately 15 minutes from Groningen Central Railway Station.

Directions to the Academy building:
The Broerplein, with the Academiegebouw and the University Library, is within walking distance of the main train station. It’s about a 10 or 15-minute walk. If you like, you can hire a bicycle at the station. The way is very easy to find.
If you stand with your back to the station you will see the Groningen Museum in the canal in front of you. Walk towards it. Cross the bridge past the museum and continue walking straight ahead. Cross over the Zuiderdiep and continue straight on, into the Folkingestraat, towards the centre. Follow the Folkingestraat until you reach the Vismarkt. Continue straight ahead, past the Zwanestraat on your right, until you see Boomkers bookshop on your right. Turn right here (Broerstraat). The entrance to the Academiegebouw is now on your left (up the stairs). The University Library is on your right.
