Utrecht

4.1

Dome City

As one of the Netherland's largest university towns, Utrecht is bursting with young energy. While Utrecht is no exception to the traditional Dutch canals and townhouses, it also features a wide range of medieval architecture and history. The city's split-level canals are quite distinct in the Netherlands. The quiet lower levels attract tourists and locals alike to set up a picnic or have a drink down by the water. On the street level, you'll experience the vibrancy of the town. Due to its central location and population of 70,000 students, cultural and entertainment events are constantly going on here. Outdoor cafes and trendy shops are scattered throughout the town, making days and nights in Utrecht exciting. Utrecht is in Utrecht Province. Take a peek at our custom trip planner: Utrecht and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.

Where to stay in Utrecht

As a major cultural and economic center, Utrecht has more than its fair share of centrally located hotels oriented towards business travelers visiting the city for a day or two. To stay longer without spending too much on a comfortable room, consider a self-catering apartment or guesthouse near the city's main train station. You can also explore the residential neighborhoods' family-run hostels, which offer simply furnished rooms with free Wi-Fi within walking distance of good restaurants and shops.
