As a native Dutchman, I’m happy to have the opportunity to share my knowledge about the beautiful and unique places that make Utrecht. My goal is to avoid the tourist hotspots and let you see Utrecht through the eyes of a local. During the week, I teach high school geography and enjoy history, music, and arts.
We meet in the unknown city center of Utrecht. It's 5/10 minutes walk from the Dom tower. We gather next to the Music dome (red/white colour) in park 'Lepelenburg'. From here the story starts, we walk through the small courtyards and alleys back in time towards the beautiful 'Ledig erf'. From here we walk alongside the canals towards the old brewery where you will experience Utrecht in a beautifully refreshing way.
