The heart of Holland

Utrecht is the beating heart of the Netherlands. A true university town that's teeming with life, Utrecht has inviting terraces, hip nightspots, welcoming restaurants and a full cultural agenda. 'Green, healthy and smart', that's Utrecht! The average resident in Utrecht owns two bicycles, earning it the title 'Bicycle Capital of the World'.

Utrecht is a dynamic city and has the ideal size to explore the centre by bike or on foot, yet expansive enough to enjoy modern architecture, trendy shops and interesting museums for days on end. Utrecht features Roman churches, medieval wharves and naturally the magnificent Gothic Dom, in addition to design by Rietveld, royal trains and distinctive musical clocks. Utrecht has a tremendously rich culture with lively events scheduled throughout the year, from light art, film, pioneering dance or classical music.
