Create an itinerary including Canals area
Visit Canals area to see the urban waterways the country is known for. The canals in Utrecht are similar to those in Amsterdam and other Dutch cities. Take the stairs down to water level and stroll along the canals. Stop at one of the many restaurants with outdoor seating and enjoy pannekoeken (Dutch pancakes) or other Dutch delicacies. To learn more about the city's history and explore it from a typically Dutch vantage point, take a boat tour. Plan my Utrecht trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • Beautiful canal you can go down and enjoy, there are restaurants downstairs too and upstairs lots of shops too. I was there during ithe day but at night it must be spectacular because everyone has lights
  • Nice place to walk and chill in Utrecht, beautiful canal and bars.
