Tour description

Explore the city of Utrecht on this fun walking tour!
Hi, my name is Lucas and i'll be your guide in Utrecht!
I am a local from Utrecht and have been doing these tours for many years
Are you ready to meet a fun group of people, explore Utrecht, and try out traditional Dutch cookies?
We'll start at Dom Square and I'll take you walking around Utrecht for about 1.5 to 2 hours.
You will make some new friends, listen to fascinating stories, view beautiful hidden places, and try some cheese at the local market.

What will we see?

  • Dom Tower (and why there is a part missing)
  • Canals and its upper and lower street levels
  • The square where there used to be a castle of peace (Vredenburg)
  • A statue that represents a man, with a very special occupation. Who? You'll get to take a guess during the tour!
  • 3 hidden gardens
  • A bar inside a church (great to go and have a drink or bite to eat after the tour)
  • Dutch parking garage for bicycles.
  • A house with a door that seems to be an illusion and has a story about pretzels.
  • A look inside the centrally located library of Utrecht and the square it is located at.
  • Pointers for nice restaurants and bars along the way.

Dutch weather:
Ah yes our weather... It can be unpredictable sometimes, sunshine first and then rain a few hours later.
But don't worry, because during the tour there will be enough spots to keep us dry. If rain is expected then bring an umbrella or raincoat.

Starting point
The tour starts and ends at the Dom Square.
