Or by bicycle, as most of the locals do. A genuine Dutch city with an international vibe, Utrecht is the beating heart of the Netherlands and home to world-class music and film festivals, modern architecture, trendy shops and interesting museums. And an easy base from which to discover the rest of the country by train. Or stay in town and enjoy a drink on a terrace along one of the Utrecht’s many scenic canals – you will love it.
Utrecht Science Park is a modern university campus located close to the heart of the city. Restaurants and cafés are concentrated in the central area around the university library, which is about five minutes’ walk from the HU buildings.
