Is your future study in Emmen? Did you know it’s in a region full of entrepreneurs? And that the city itself has the largest indoor shopping centre in the Netherlands? Come and find out more about this beautiful Dutch city.

Situated in the northeast of the Netherlands, Emmen is a small place where city and nature are combined. The centre is incredibly active with bars and cafes to eat some Bitterballen and drink a cold beer. Many stores and a public park are ideal for relaxing and enjoying the view. Cycling around the city, you can also find beautiful forests that are the perfect place for long walks, especially in winter when the snow covers the trees. The best part is that from Emmen, you can explore other Dutch cities like Groningen or Utrecht, which are fantastic for visiting on the weekends and meeting other students.
