|August 01, 2020 - December 31, 2021||3 weeks|
Flexible, we are retired since July 2020, so from 3 days (within the Netherlands) up to several weeks. In these Corona-times Intervac is probably a very safe way to visit other cities / countries! Our next exchange is 13-07 / 25-07-2020. Summer 2021 : Canada (Nova-Scotia, New Foundland, Victoria-Island), San Francisco, Seattle. But in these Corona-times also nearby in Europe! We will consider any offer!
House in Groningen, the Netherlands
We live in Groningen since july 2010. We moved to this house in april 2016. It's a splitlevel-house with 5 floors, a secluded private garden (20 mt. long) and a roof terrace with view on the Martini-tower. We live in a popular neighbourhood on a quiet street near the centre of Groningen (3 min. walking to the Grote Markt and Forum / opposite the theatre).
Several supermarkets and restaurants are within 5 min. walk. The busstop to the station (10 min./ 2 km.) is just around the corner.
Groningen is ideal for cycling. From our neighbourhood several cycleroutes go in every direction. By good public transport (trains and busses) it's very easy to visit nearby cities and landmarks (the Wadden-islands = UNESCO Heritage).
Groningen - Amsterdam (Schiphol Airport) by Intercity-train is about 2hrs.30 min. Amsterdam - London by Eurostar, Amsterdam - Paris by Thalys.
Private parking for your car behind our house.

Groningen is the most important city in the northern part of the Netherlands. It has 200.000 inh., a beautiful old city-centre and a world-famous museum of modern art.
End of august there is a very nice cultural festival (Noorderzon) with lots of music and theatre.
In the surroundings you can find lakes, forests, the Wadden-islands and beautiful agricultural landscapes of the provinces Groningen and Friesland.
We live in the centre of Groningen, just 3. min. walking to the main market-square.
It is easy to take a bus to the station or try one of our bicycles! It is very safe to cycle in Groningen.
In the province you can visit several beautiful small villages like Winsum, Eenrum, Appingedam and Pieterburen.
From Pieterburen you can do 'mudflat-hiking', even to Schiermonnikoog.
From / to Amsterdam (Schiphol airport) there are direct trains (about 2 - 2,5 hrs.).
The Netherlands are more than only Amsterdam. You could visit Amsterdam and stay in Groningen afterwards to experience the Netherlands as it really is!

About Our Family
We just retired from teaching (Wiepke 67 and Kor 63), our two daughters live in Driebergen and London.
We like to travel and have seen a lot of the world, but there are always nice countries and more cities to visit.
We are since long Intervac-members and we were never disappointed.
One of our daughters studies/works in London.
We like to visit her for a longer period, so an exchange with London (or surroundings) would be great.
Voor korte schoolvakanties, lange weekeinden staan we open voor alle voorstellen, ook binnen Nederland.
We are also interested in (short) exchanges with European cities (Hamburg, Berlin, Wien, Paris etc.),
long weekends or schoolholidays.
This member has completed 42 successful exchanges. Here are some members that he exchanged with in the past:
