Forum Groningen

We visited the Forum in Groningen today. It’s been the subject of a lot of talk since the moment it was being built. A hideous, way to expensive building in the center of Groningen. And for what use?

Personally I think it’s an incredible building. It’s grand, looks amazing and the view on the roof is fantastic. It’s a bit surreal on the inside with all the escalators, but it does give it a bit of a magical feeling. As far as I’m concerned it’s absolutely OK. Will definitely come back when it’s warmer and a bit less crowded. Possibly there will be some photos of the building itself too then :)
