We loved Utrecht that was bustling with people but not as crowded as Amsterdam- great little shops and restaurants at every corner. Evening hours were enchanting with the city lit up lights reflecting on the canals. Just charming place to stay and an easy train...More

Lovely walk when it’s not bad weather, great way to see the sights of Utrecht (although hard to see some as it’s dark). Mostly straightforward to follow the pavement lights. The tunnel makes this all worthwhile. Make sure you download the map first in case...More

The city is already charming, and became even more with this special lighting. The difficult part is waiting for it to get dark haha. I come from the South Hemisphere, where it gets dark way earlier than in the North Hemisphere. But it's worth the...More
