Take extra travel time into account during the summer holidays!


The N361 between Groningen and Lauwersoog is the  usual route for motorists from Groningen to drive to the Sealcentre in Pieterburen. This summer holiday - from July 15th to August 23rd - part of this road is blocked between Groningen and Sauwerd.

From Groningen, the start of the Provincialeweg to the Munnikeweg in Adorp is completely blocked for traffic in both directions. Traffic is diverted from Groningen via the N355. Car traffic then goes through Aduard, Roodehaan and Mensingeweer in the direction of Pieterburen. If this route is followed, this means an additional travel time of approximately 12 minutes from Groningen.
