The food is very ordinary, and not even convincing: bland, and uninteresting. The Nasi isn't. TheNi Hao group used to do much better - in the 1990's the old Ni Hao itself was even in the Michelin Guide. But this quality of food (similar to...More

The Hortus in Haren is always worth a visit. It's large enough for a good walk, but if you don't want to walk very far can choose to stay close to the entrance and just visit the beautiful Chinese garden. This garden was sponsored by...More

If you are in the area, it is worth a visit - in part to see the fascinating upmarket neighborhood with rather grand houses that line the route from the train station (20 min walk or there is a bus from the train). The entrance...More

The Chinese garden has a nice atmosphere. The rest of the gardens were not so special. Spend a few hours walking but the Pokemon Go gyms were much more interesting at this place. Shame of the EU 8,50 entry

We paid e8,50 per person entrance. For that amount you expect something. It was a big disappointment. Wrong names placed at plants/trees, a rosarium without roses, lots of weeds, a garden in decay! We expected a greenhouse, but it is gone. In the past it...More

A beautifully designed garden a few kilometers from the city. Even in March it had things to appreciate. Water, rockeries, winter-flowering shrubs, chinese garden etc. Well worth a few hours.

This garden is in Haren, south of Groningen. Take the bus not the train, it gets you nearer to the Garden, even then it is a good walk to get there. This is a wonderfully large botanical garden, well labeled and maintained. The Chinese Garden...More
