The fourth biggest city in the Netherlands, Utrecht boasts beautiful parks, medieval churches and enviable terraces along its maze of canals. See it all from the comfort of your boat on this canal cruise through the city.

Stocked up on stroopwafels? Eaten every free cube in the cheese shops? Hop aboard a boat and see a different side of Utrecht from its unique canal system.

Learn about the city's medieval history as you cruise past historical highlights -plus you can board at any point you like!

The tour and its stops include the Railway Museum (Spoorwegmuseum), the Astronomical Observatory (Sterrenwacht de Sonnenborgh), the Cathedral tower (Domtoren) and more!

Your boat is fully heated, but if you're lucky enough to get some Dutch sunshine, the roof panels and side windows will be flung wide-open for even more medieval viewing pleasure.

Must do experience in Utrecht! You can see many things in short time

Nice tour of central Utrecht, though the boat is very noisy and the speakers with the pre-recorded messages - in the various supported languages - do not stop when the boat needs to do something even noisier than usual, like "breaking". This means that you will miss several of the descriptions. However, it seems that there is no competition, and probably the experience is worth it anyway.
