7 Day Itinerary in UtrechtEdit This
If you are planning a holiday in Utrecht, this Utrecht Itinerary will help you plan what to do and where to go for a whole week.
Day 1 - Dom Tower
The Dom Tower serves as the emblem of the city, having a height of 112 meters and 465 steps. You will surely be taken away by the breathtaking views as you walk towards the peak of the tower, where the full beauty of the city can be observed.
Day 2 - The National Museum
As we all know, the street organ is the signature musical instrument of the Netherlands. Various types of street organs and musical clocks are displayed at the National Museum. A “pling-plong” room is available for children who want to create their very own tunes that can be played on the music box. From music boxes to Pianolas, this is the perfect place for music lovers to learn more and enjoy the music that graces the streets of Utrecht.
Day 3 - The Fortresses
Having no more martial functions, the city’s fortresses are now turned into tourist spots to impart knowledge about the historical scenes of the past. One of the strongest forts of the Netherlands would be the New Dutch Waterline, a small region which was flooded to be used as a defense row against potential captors. This was built between the years 1815 and 1885.
Day 4 - The Canals
A visit to the romantic canals built during the 14th century is highly recommended. It is also perfect for couples on a honeymoon. There are dozens of restaurants near the canals where you can taste the native food, as well as canal boats that you can ride while you reminisce about happy memories with your loved one.
Day 5 - Utrecht Museum Quarter
The Utrecht Museum Quarter offers visitors a tour around the city, which includes the cultural and historical aspects that make Utrecht as varied from other European cities as it is. The so-called “RonDom” is the first place that a traveler should visit to start off with the diverse cultural history of Utrecht.
Day 6 - Almshouses and Chambers
The petite residences located at the heart of Utrecht served as the almshouses, often referred to as "chambers," having only solo rooms. This place was once a haven for laborers and widows who did not have enough finances support a normal living.
Day 7 - Oudegracht
Visit the “old canal” or the Oudegracht. As you sail down the canal you will see notable statues, beautiful gardens, and centuries-old yards.
