About Utrecht

The canal belt of this city is the center of culture and history and this makes it the beating heart of the Netherlands. In addition to all the cozy canals, where you can linger on the water, Utrecht has cozy little streets and lush green parks.

This city, which has been declared the most beautiful canal city in Europe, is also perfect for a day of shopping and going out. The churches and Dom Tower are certainly worth a visit, and then to drink a beer at the yard!

There is always something going on in Utrecht. Whether you live there or are visiting, the city continues to surprise you. You can wander around here for days and discover new things: From a special store in a side street of the Oudegracht to a coffee bar in an old business building.

But at the same time, Utrecht is remarkably compact and well-organized. Museums, shops and restaurants are centrally located and the medieval city center is ideal for exploring on foot. For example, take a look at the Museum Quarter, visit the cozy (regional) markets or search for the most beautiful and cozy spots in the city. Because in the charming squares and in the numerous alleys the city really comes to life.
