Mijn ouders gaan op zondag 20 November met een bus naar de Verzamelaarsbeurs in Utrecht.
Een aantal van de echtgenotes die meegaan, zijn niet zo erg geinteresseerd in die beurs, en die zouden liever in het centrum gaan wandelen (winkelen ?).
Weet er iemand of er op zondag ook winkels open zijn in Utrecht?
Dan kunnen we dit alvast meegeven met de dames, en kunnen ze hun verwachtingspatroon daar een beetje op instellen

I ve just come back from lovely stay in Utrecht. I have a question, i saw in the main street near the tower and a parallel street a metal strip across the road ,engraved with design and words, i thought it might be a meridian line, but Utrecht is not on any thing special. Can anyone tell me what it is, i hope its not a drain cover. Thanks.
Can somebody please tell me how could I get to University College Utrecht (Campusplein) from Utrecht Centraal? I'll be coming in Utrecht on September 1st. Thanks a lot in advance!
Greetings from the USA,
My wife and I will be in back in the Netherlands
during mid September ( the 15th - the 25th )....
We will be staying with friends in IJsselstein for
10 days as we do most every year since 1998. We
have been to IJsselstein 18 times, because we really
like that part of the country. Alot of years I have
been there twice in one year.
If possible, we would like to meet local VTer's who
live in the greater Utrecht area while we are there.
If you are a local and would like to meet up while we
are there, please reply here or send us a VT e-mail.
Check out our IJsselstein pages and travelogues ....

We are in Zeist for a wedding in July. The hotel we are booking seems quite confusing, but the breakfast seems to be 20 euros each per day, which seems a bit strong. So thinking we will just go room only. Where is good for breakfast in central Zeist? Cafe's, bakeries etc. We will be staying in the theater figi hotel I think and I am told that is quite central.
Any other advice would be welcome too.
I'll go to stay a weekend in Utrecht in June. What can I do and visit?
Thanks for your answer.
Hello, My Dutch born husband and I hope to visit the Netherlands, basing ourselves in the Utrecht region Utrecht Amersfoort, Maarsen, from April until October 2011. Any advice on accommodation, easy, difficult expensive? where that is safe etc. etc. and any other useful info would be most welcome. We are aware of the 90 day restriction, and my husband is in the process of regaining his Dutch citizenship.Rgds
I was in Utrecht 2 weeks ago. Whenever I go to the Netherlands I shop in a store called DIDI. While walking through the Utrecht train station, I spotted a DIDI Outlet Store! I was thrilled to find it and went in. I found out I had 5 minutes till the store closed and with my husband we picked out as much as I could try on in that time.
I am wondering if I could call the store and get them to send some stuff to the USA for me? Do you think it's a long shot and how can I get the email or any contact information for the store? Hmmm ....
Your thoughts ...
I'm Venelin and I need your help ! In 29th October I'll be in Utrecht for concert. After the show or early in the morning I must catch train or bus to Frankfurt, from where in 11:05 I'll catch train to Göppingen.
I found in http://www.nshispeed.nl/ a train "Utrecht - Frankfurt Main", but it arrives in Frankfurt in 10:50 - 15 minutes before the train for Göppingen departure.
So I would ask you, please, do you know where could I search for buses to Frankfurt?
Thank you in advance!
Greetings from Bulgaria!
I would like to visit the park of the castle de HAAR and photograph it, but I can't make it earlier than 19:00. Is the park/garden open later for walking around? many thanks
I will be coming to Utrecht from Amsterdam in 2 weeks to see a concert in the Tivoli. I would like to stay in Utrecht as I have never been before even though I used to live in Amsterdam.
I am going to travel to Utrecht Station (Centraal). Is this near the Tivoli? i.e How many minutess in a taxi or by walking? Based on this I will then book a hotel in the area. I also read about the zandpond houseboats. I would like to visit this area but I wonder is it sage area to travel? I am not interested in ladies but just do not want to find any trouble. I am sensible person who can avoid all trouble. Is this far from the Tivoli or central station?
Thank you in advance for all your help
There seems to be no cheap hotels in Utrect (at least according to bookings and venere).We allway try to find something under 80e and we need a parking too.Is there some hotels someone would like to suggest,witch have web-page,but are maybe not at bookings/venere-list.
Suggestions please for arriving by motorhome (6.7mL; 3.1mH), on a Thursday in April, coming from Woerden area. Would it be best for me to park up well away from the centre? If so, any suggestions? Are there water taxis on canals? Public transport? Ideal for biking in? Thanks in advance for any advice.
wondering if anyone knows whats good do visit during the day and what to visit at night for a good time. I am gonna go to trance energy so i need to figure out what to do till them, bars, pubs, historic sites any help would be appreciated. I would like to meet the locals.
Thanks in advance
Where can our grandson (a student) purchase groceries for a "thanksgiving dinner" in Utrecht? This would be items like cranberries, pumpkin pie mix, etc.
He can possibly shop in person (on his bike) or have the items delivered. He lives on Cambridgelaan.
Would appreciate an early response. Thank you.
I just arrived to Utrecht and I'm looking forward to learn some Dutch and more about the life and culture here. I´m originally from Mexico, but have lived abroad for around4 years. If you are interested in learning Spanish, or practice it in exchange of basic Dutch lessons :D don't hesitate in contacting me.
This summer I will be taking a new position in Vianen and have decided to live in Utrecht. I'm originally from the UK and my knowledge of the geogrpahy & how to get around Holland are limited. I've decided not to take a company car initially and wondered how easy it was to travel from Utrecht to Vianen on public transport? All help / suggestions gratefully rec'd.
I will be staying in Utrecht for 1 year studying.
I have been offered to stay at The Minrebroederstraat, however wanted some opinions of the place??? Is it a nice area to live for a year? Is it dangerous? Is it central?

My husband and I are visiting Holland December 26 to January 4. Are there any interesting things going on then?
I'm coming to Utrecht tonight (13th October). Can anyone recommend a decent hostel or cheap hotel fairly close to the centre of town?
I'm going to study in Utrecht for a year, but my flight arrives 6 days before my room is available, so I am looking for the best choice to stay at those few days considering a budget that didn't include such expense at first. So far, I have done some research and found out 2 cheap options: Hostel B&B Utrecht City Center and Strowis Budget Hostel. Could anyone give me any advice, opinion or tip about these options (or any other if available) so I can take a better informed decision? I will be greatly thankful for your asnwer.
I'll visit Utrecht as a daytrip from A'dam. Is there any walking tour u have in mind or it's so nice as I read in Vt pages just walking around this city? Ok, the Dom and a walk by the canal looks great but are there any other Must See activities in the centre?
Is there a tour company that does canal boat tours? Searched on these boards and googled but come up with nothing. Any info would be appreciated. thank you.
Hi... Looking for directions from central station. Thanks.
My wife and I will be taking our daughter along to University College Utrecht in August. We would prefer the independance of a small appartment for the two of us ( my daughter will be in Halls of Residence ). Can any members give us some leads to find something suitable ?
Many Thanks in advance
Can anyone suggest a couple of decent bars for this Monday & Tuesday night coming up, as I'm staying in Utrecht for 2 nights. Preferebly with locals as I prefer mingling people watching with the locals when I travel, rather than ex pat British!
