The Best Budget Hostels in Utrecht, Netherlands Utrecht, Netherlands
Utrecht is a city in the central Netherlands that has been a religious center for centuries. Utrecht is one of the Netherlands’ oldest cities, with a compact medieval center set out around canals unique to the Netherlands: there’s a lower level where warehouses were located in the 13th century, giving the canals a split-level character. While the canals form Utrecht’s restful core, elsewhere the city is busy reinventing itself, and part of the excitement is witnessing this ongoing transformation. Roads such as Catharijnebaan are being turned back into the canals they once were and the spectacular new train station, nearing completion, adds a vital complement to the old town, adjoined by a greatly expanded concert hall that includes five venues. The iconic Domtoren, a 14th-century bell tower with city views, stands opposite the Gothic Cathedral of St. Martin on central Domplein square. The Museum Catharijneconvent shows religious art and artifacts in a former monastery. Utrecht’s student population of 40,000 is the largest in the country, making the city a very vibrant place. From subterranean music cellars to movie house-pubs to a slew of special beer cafes, the range of social outlets ranks among the nation’s broadest. Utrecht is an exciting destination to visit and these hostels provide an excellent base for exploring the area.
