And imagine all this within walking distance from you home, no wonder I love living here! #pinyourcity Netherlands Travel, Lonely Planet, Pinterest Board, Travel Experience, Hometown, Distance, Travel Tips, Around The Worlds

A good way to start your tour through Utrecht is... after dark! Although Philips' 'hometown' Eindhoven is widely regarded as the Dutch city of light, it's Utrecht where this light-themed city tour takes place! Trajectum Lumen is a city tour guides you through the nicest places and canals in the city center. It's completely free, so there's no reason not to do it. Utrecht has the ambition to be the cultural capital of 2018, I think projects like these certainly help. #pinyourcity Cultural Capital, Eindhoven, Canals, After Dark, City Lights, Ambition, Tour Guide

When in Utrecht, there's one thing not to miss; the famous Dom tower in the city centre. You literally can't miss it, because wherever in the city you are, the Dom tower is always in sight! It's a great navigation point when you're lost, too. A view from the top of the tower is worth the climb! When on top; you can see how big Utrecht actually is! However, it still feels like a village, that's what makes this city so welcoming and livable. #pinyourcity Cloud Gate, Climbing, Sydney Opera House, Literally, Centre, Village, Feels

The city of Utrecht has a long history, dating back to the founding of the city by the Romans, in 50 CE. Since the city wasn't heavily bombed in WW II, manyold buildings are still in tact (and in use!). After you've visited the famous Dom tower, take a walk in the 'Museumkwartier' area. A great area to find various museums and view the beautiful buildings in this part of the city. Just follow the 'Oudegracht' (the canal), you'll end up in 'Museumkwartier'. #pinyourcity Beautiful Buildings, Heavily, Romans, Museums, Geo, Canal, Tower, Dating

The 'Voorstraat' is one of the streets that's heavily developing into an area to see and to be seen by modern youngsters. Coffee bars, unique boutiques and great record stores, the Voorstraat is the place to be! It's the dynamics that make it great to live in this area. My favorite spot here is right next to my house: Coffee bar 'the Village'. They serve great coffee and have live bands playing a few times a month. The Voorstraat is right across the Neude square in the city center. #pinyourcity Restaurant Interior Design, House Interior, Coffee Cafe, House Coffee, Coffee Shops, Village Coffee, Coffee Music, Great Coffee, Food Shop

Utrecht is home to many students. It makes the city feel young and is the main reason that there are many bars, clubs and cinemas. The college campus is located just outside the city center, reachable by buses 11 and 12 departing from central station. The campus is worth a visit if you're into architecture. Architect Rem Koolhaas designed some beautiful buildings here. The contrast between the old city and the 'modern' campus is really inspiring. #pinyourcity Rem Koolhaas, Feel Younger, College Campus, Central Station, Old City, Buses

After all those sights in Utrecht you're probably hungry. You can grab a bite in one of the numerous restaurants in the city center. What I like to do is visit the Kanaalstraat in Lombok region and fill my bag with amazingly fresh vegetables and fruits. This region is a great addition to the city, it perfectly blends the Dutch culture with foreign cultures. The Kanaalstraat is within walking distance from Utrecht Central Station. Make sure you use the west exit to 'Jaarbeursplein'. #pinyourcity Fruit, Fresh, Om, Restaurants, Foods, Walking, City Restaurants

Luckily, Utrecht is more than just urban space. There's room for nature, too! After a day in the city, Amelisweerd is a nice place to relax. This rural estate has a great history and is home to some really nice buildings. Take bus 41 from Utrecht Central Station and look out for bus stop 'Oud-Amelisweerd'. Since Utrecht is located near the nature, it's a great city to live in. #pinyourcity I've Changed, Urban Spaces, Travel Design, Source Of Inspiration, Find Image, Rural
