The province of Groningen is the northeast province of the Netherlands and has the province of Friesland on its west, the province of Drenthe on its south, Germany on its east and the Wadden Sea on its north. Groningen was at one time part of Friesland as well as part of German lands that borders it but never a part of Germany. There is a section in northern Germany where they speak Frisian (that is called Oost-Friesland) and that is because "Frisia" covered all the northern part of the Netherlands and part of the northern area of Germany.
