We did not want to stay in Amsterdam again, but rather somewhere more in the country side. Why we decided on Utrecht, I am not quite able to tell you, but researching it here on VT kind of made up my mind that this was a good place to stay. I loved Utrecht and we had a great time here.

Utrecht city and municipality is the capital of the Dutch province of Utrecht. It is located in the eastern end of the Randstad, and is the fourth largest city of the Netherlands.

Utrecht's ancient city-centre features many buildings and structures from early days. It has been the religious centre of the Netherlands since the eighth century. Currently it is the see of the Archbishop of Utrecht, the most important Dutch Roman Catholic leader.

Utrecht University is the largest university of the Netherlands.

    Yes I had a lovely time visiting Utrecht twice and still have cravings for the brilliant chinese food at Wok to Go I had there! Lovely buildings esp the tower in the main street. I think your Anne Frank statue tip belongs in your Amsterdam page though?

    The mix of architecture-new and old as well as all the art variety must have been a great place to savor and then show VT readers about the area. Good job

    Thank you for visiting my Haarlem page. The "Dutch way of life" has left the big cities but can still be found in the smaller towns. Haarlem, Leiden and Delft are some of my favoured ones. My visits to Utrecht were only for business.

    Have just returned from Utrecht. Would have liked to have known about the 1.6eu bus trip back then. Much nicer & cheaper than staying in Amsterdam. Good variety of tips and nice photos!
