Around 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the southeast of Lauwersoog is Groningen, a regional city where you can visit Vismarkt, Dutch Comics Museum and Martinikerk. Hooghoudt Brewery, Grafisch Museum and Visual Arts Centre are also well-worth calling into while you are in Groningen.

These are good places to soak up some of the local culture and perhaps pick up an unusual gift or two.
Get a different perspective on this region by heading skyward. Hot air ballooning is a popular pastime here. Unwind the way the locals do in the Netherlands. Try beach combing and shore fishing while you are in the area.
