The Netherland’s fastest growing city is filled with intriguing historical sites and gothic architecture. Located between Amsterdam and Rotterdam, Utrecht hosts a number of things to do. Explore the beautiful area around the Oudegracht canal, see the distant skylines of Amsterdam and Rotterdam from the top of the iconic Dom Tower, or experience the magic of De Haar Castle. With so many activities to check out in Utrecht, it’s best to book a tour with a local guide.
From the Kromme Rijn River, which once marked the northern border of the Roman empire to the city canals, Utrecht is home to an abundance of natural beauty as well as living history. The ever-evolving area of Paardenveld, which means “horse market,” now hosts beautiful parks along the canals and is a great place to start a biking, kayak, or boat tour of the city. From there, you can follow the current to the newest shopping center, Hoog Catharijne, or to the Spoorwegmuseum to learn about the city’s history of transportation. The Catharijnesingel canal surrounds the city center making it easy to float to these beautiful spots. You can also bike along the Oudegracht canal for a closer look at Dom Tower or to stop at the Utrecht Art Galleries. After you’re done taking in the sights, you can stop at Banketbakkerij Theo Blom for a Domtorentjes bonbon, specially made since 1922 with the Dom Tower icon imprinted on a chocolate-filled treat.
