The historic Dom District – #utrecht diaries.
There’s so much to see in and around #netherlands
This place is much more than just Tulips, Redlight streets, sex shops & Smoking up ! 😀
If you travel an hour out of Amsterdam, & visit #utrechtcity , you can easily spend the entire day walking along the canals, taking in the lovely sights and sounds of this beautiful city. Visit some quaint & quirky shops, eateries, & visit old monuments.
At DOMunder you can descend below Dom Square (Domplein) and see a large collection of archaeological finds. It’s also fun to climb the Dom Tower’s 465 steps since there’s such a fantastic view of the city from the top.
Around Domplein, you’ll find numerous centuries-old monuments, convent gardens and historic shopping streets. Make sure you walk through the Zadelstraat and have a look inside the unique home fashion stores and stylish boutiques.
And where better to finish off a day in Utrecht than in the city’s beating heart?
On the Domplein, there are plenty of charming restaurants where the locals themselves like to gather for a bite and a drink.
