Architecture by bicycle
For years the city of Groningen has been known for the opportunities it creates for daring, experimental and unusual architecture. From all over the world people come to see the Wall House, the Groningen Museum, the Gasunie (the Dutch Gas Union) and the Blue Moon pavilions.
Apart from being a city of architecture, Groningen is also a true city of bicycles. For its 180 000 inhabitans there are 306 000 bikes. Almost forty procent of all local travel is done by bike. This is not suprising, as in Groningen a bicycle often gets you from point A to point B faster than a car. City bikes, racing bikes, mountain bikes.... for Groningen the bike is the most efficient means of transport.
FARB challenges you to take your bicycle and experience the city's architecture yourself. Not just the internationally renowned "highlights", but also more hidden examples of modern architecture that are just as interesting, if not more so. Thus FARB is not only a bicycle touring guide - it also offers a fine overview of the extraordinary architecture in Groningen.
Just as Groningen is a city which you see anew every time, FARB is a booklet which can be used again and again, and always is a different way.
