    I am ashamed to say I have never even heard of Utrecht let alone been there, and I have been to The Dam many times! On my next visit, I will be sure to take in this lovely city and will definitely be hiring a bike!! I will also be sure to order a latte in one of the places you recommended whilst people watching 🙂

      Angie, you totally should. It’s a great city and offers something very different to Amsterdam! I really want to explore some of the other cities in The Netherlands too!

    Looks like a cool place to visit but a little more low key than Amsterdam. I love visiting places like this, hopefully get there one day.

      You definitely should! It’s easy to get to and provides an escape from the craziness of Amsterdam!

    Wow, can’t believe I have never heard of UTRECHT. What a great day trip or longer visit from Amsterdam. Seems like a wonderful place to visit and will be on the itinerary for my next trip Amsterdam. Great itinerary and will have to share 🙂

      Thank you Stephanie. I am really glad I headed there as there were hardly any tourists around!

    The Netherlands is one country in Europe that I have to say I’ve seen very little of. I’ve wondered if Utrecht was worth the visit and now it seems it is. Do you think you can cover most of it in a day or would you recommend spending a little more time? If I do get there, this itinerary looks perfect for me, interest and budget-wise. Cheers Alexei!

      David, it’s a very compact city so very easy to get around and see everything in a day but if you like to amble and people watch, an overnight stay could also be great. I would have loved to catch some live music or maybe head out into the countryside. The great thing is it is just so continent to get to/from!

    Great itinerary! Of course, you had us right up front with the best coffee in Europe. Can’t wait to put this to use!

    Love itineraries like this, nice work! You certainly packed in a lot. I’ve not heard of Utrecht either, but sounds like a cool city worth trying, next time we visit Amsterdam. Cheers

      Thanks, Garth. I enjoyed putting it together and all of it is very realistic to do in a day!
