Utrecht City Guide


Utrecht City Guide: 5 hotspots to check out

20 October 2015

New video with our favourite addresses in Utrecht

Utrecht isn’t the city I live in, but what a cool city it is! Not long ago I took the train for a day trip to Utrecht, checking out the nicest hotspots. It’s only a 30 minutes train ride from Amsterdam and it’s located super central from pretty much everywhere in The Netherlands. I always had this immature feeling about Utrecht. Dark -beer smelling- pubs and cheap unhealthy meals. But trust me! Utrecht has changed, it’s a trendy city now. A recommendation for a day trip. Why? Have a look at this video where I visited 5 hotspots. Nice to check out on your next day (or weekend) trip to Utrecht.


Handy: the OV-bike

Last summer I discovered the OV-bike. What a great solution! To travel by train to a different city (so I can keep blogging while I’m travelling) and after that I can grab a bike at the station to ride from one hotspot to the other. The same as I do in Amsterdam! For only € 3,15 (per 24 hours) you can rent an OV-bike at the station. You do need to have a personal OV-card (those yellow ones with photo). You pay a € 10,- membership fee and you can rent a bike from almost every train station.

Utrecht City Guide

Are you planning a day trip to a different city? Go by train and rent an OV-bike to ride past your favourite hotspots! So much more fun than taking the car or tram :-).

Tip: NS has a special on offer at the moment. For only € 35,- you get an off-peak hours card with 40% discount and an OV-bike membership.
