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. Plan your vacation with our The Netherlands trip itinerary builder and discover the best things to do in Utrecht.
