The historic centre of Utrecht

Utrecht is a great city in the centre of the Netherlands and a good place to stay if you're planning on visiting other parts of the country. The train connection to Amsterdam is good and it will take about half an hour to get from Utrecht to Amsterdam Central Station.

Utrecht itself has a lot to offer with some amazing shopping, great markets and nice restaurants. All these touristic attractions are located in the city centre and the best way to get to see Utrecht is by walking.

A great restaurant would be Club Havana, just behind the Domplein square. This Cuban restaurant serves delicious tapas, great wine and is right in the centre. But not to worry if you'll wind up somewhere else because Utrecht is filled with good restaurants, nice eateries and cafes.
