The 20 most beautiful sights and museums to visit in Utrecht

Utrecht was one of the first cities in the Netherlands with city rights and has a long history. After Amsterdam and Maastricht, Utrecht has the largest number of national monuments. Characteristic of the city is the Domtoren, which is why Utrecht is called the Domstad. The 112 meter high church tower is the highest in the Netherlands. The historic centre is surrounded by a single canal and the Oudegracht and Nieuwegracht run right through the city. Along the Oudegracht you will find the characteristic yards and yard cellars with nice hot spots and terraces along the water.
