Things to do in Canals Utrecht

(1)

Navigating by Utrech canals is the essential and best way to discover the city. Oudegracht and Nieuwegracht are its two main canals and are surrounded by historic buildings, restaurants, cafes, boutiques, bridges, and lush trees running through the entire historic city center.

The canals were built as a navigation route at the beginning of the 12th century. The water-level cellars and terraces connected directly with the warehouses of the houses and shops. Today, these basements have been transformed into cafes and restaurants, turning the canal into a very long terrace where you can enjoy a pleasant day.

Get your tickets to explore Utrecht by boat tours, cruises, or guided tours and discover its architectural landmarks. A must-see for every tourist.

Reviews Canals Utrecht

Jacob, Sep 06, 2021

“We enjoyed the questions and had fun showing our friend around our city. Sometimes there wasn't enough historical information (one location had a "turbulent past" but the guide did not go into detail) and we wished we had learned more.”
