Free tour Utrecht Highlights
As a guide and historian I have worked around the world. But each time I came back to Utrecht, I realized this is the place I really want to be. There’s so much to enjoy here! Past and present! During the Covid Crisis it became clear to me how much I missed showing people around in my hometown. Not just the telling of the stories or showing the hidden gems, but meeting new people. When showing people around my dear old Utrecht I’m having just as much of a holiday as my guests!
Utrecht is one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands. A smaller and easygoing version of Amsterdam it’s called sometimes. But it’s so much more than that! Utrecht is a vibrant university city, filled with quaint shops, old brown bars, hidden oasis and oh yeah plenty of canals and gabled houses.
During this tour I will show you around town. Being a historian in an old town like Utrecht is a bit like being Charlie in the Chocolate factory. So there will be many old stories. Other things will be talked about as well. How come we don’t get into accidents with all those bicycles? How does Utrecht try to create a modern living climate? And questions? I love questions! Ask me anything! (Well almost anything).
The tour will include some unmissable highlights. The cathedral. The Canals. But it will also take you to some hidden gems, so quiet and peaceful, you will forget you’re in the fourth largest city of the Netherlands. It’s impossible to get to know all of Utrecht in one walk, but at the end of my tour you will have a pretty good idea what Utrecht is all about.
We start and end at the Cathedral Square (Domplein), next to the statue of Jan van Nassau.
Come with me. Get to know one of the loveliest towns in the Netherlands. Make the most of your time in good old Utrecht!
(The minimum number of participants in principle is 5. If the minimum number of participants has not been reached two hours before the start, the tour is automatically cancelled.
