Utrecht is the lively, beating heart of Holland. Its main attraction is the impressive medieval Dom tower. Utrecht boasts beautiful canals with extraordinary wharf cellars housing cafés and terraces by the water. As well as the Dom tower, Utrecht boasts hundreds of other monuments that each contribute to the special atmosphere in this centuries-old university town. And make sure to spot Miffy, the figure from the world-famous children’s books by Utrecht-based writer and artist Dick Bruna.
In Utrecht, visitors can find a number of unique and diverse museums, ranging from modern art to architecture to typically Dutch barrel organs. It’s also possible to go out for a more active trip in Utrecht. Take a boat tour through the canals for example, or experience the treasuries of the Dom Church by going ‘Dom Under’!
