Grone is centrally located and has very good public transport, many shopping and leisure-time possibilities, and also walks for relaxation. Several shopping centres such as the Kaufpark and many small retailers offer everything one needs for daily life. Walking and cycling tracks around the Levinschen Park or along the Grone attract visitors, as does the historical ‘Saline Luisenhall’, the last remaining salt works in Europe still using the open pan technique. The centre of Göttingen is easily accessible by bicycle or on foot, or you can take the bus. 29 associations in Grone and various sports facilities offer plenty of choice for how to spend leisure time.
Your children are very important to us...
For the youngest, the area has four kindergartens and various play facilities. In 2005, the Städtische Wohnungsbau renovated a playground between the houses on Ernst-Abbe-Straße and Königsstieg, an action that was warmly welcomed. Only a short distance away is the Egelsberg primary school and right next to the Ernst-Abbe-Straße is the Geschwister-Scholl comprehensive school.
When school is out there are many good ways for the young people to spend their free time: the ‘Naturerlebnisbad Grone’ is a swimming lake with an excitingly near-natural swimming environment including rocks and beaches; there are also numerous opportunities for games and sport. Does your child enjoy playing football or might he or she like to switch to handball, aerobics, jazz dance, children’s gymnastics, tennis or volleyball, perhaps? All these options are available at the Greitweg local sports centre right next to the Ernst-Abbe-Straße.
