“The Venice of the North”
Review of Canals area

Canals area
Ranked #1 of 121 things to do in Utrecht
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed April 5, 2018

Utrecht shares this title with Bruges and Gethioorn but this is the only real city with a great canal system. By following the paths on the canals you will visit the most amazing areas of the city. Packed with great coffe shops on terraces, and milestones.

Tranquil setting and a great place for a stroll. The weather was not great during our visit but was still worth the visit.

Really pretty with plenty of shop and cafes. Great for a stroll and chilling out. It was really busy on Saturday although still very enjoyable

Utrecht is prettier than Amsterdam when it comes to canals and sightseeing. Must visit it when in The Netherlands.

If you’re looking for the perfect photo op, be discerning. Many part of the canals are under repair.
