Discover the center of the Netherlands?

Go on holiday in Utrecht and discover the beauty this province has to offer.

The Utrechtse Heuvelrug is the second largest forest area in the Netherlands after the Veluwe and is located between Utrecht and Amersfoort. In addition to this National Park with forests and heaths, there is also plenty of water to see in the province. For example, there is the Henschotermeer, which is beautiful to visit all year round. Here you can swim, walk and even skate in heavy frost. In addition, there are also the Loosdrechtse Plassen in Utrecht where various water sports can be practiced. The longest river in Europe, the Rhine, is also not to be missed during your holiday in Utrecht. The branches of this river, such as the Vecht and the Lek, also flow through this beautiful province.

Finally, the largest church tower in the Netherlands from 1321 is located in Utrecht, namely the 112 meter high Dom Tower, which is definitely worth a visit. You can go up there by stairs or elevator, which gives you a fantastic view over the region. In short, if you go on holiday to Utrecht, you will enjoy a beautiful varied environment and you can feel at home everywhere.

Holiday Utrechtse Heuvelrug

You can enjoy the peace and quiet in nature with a holiday in the Utrechtse Heuvelrug. The Heuvelrug was created about 150,000 years ago during the Ice Age. Because the water in the rivers froze, sand and gravel were pushed up and moraines were created. From the Utrechtse Heuvelrug National Park you have a view of the forest, heath and river landscape. Here you can see different kinds of animals such as birds, roe deer, badgers and amphibians. You can spot these animals during a peaceful walking or cycling trip in your sustainable holiday Utrecht. It is also possible to make a more active mountain bike tour through the woods during your holiday in Utrecht.

In addition to plants and animals, there are also many castles and other cultural heritages to see, such as the pyramid of Austerlitz. Built in 1804 as a tribute to Napoleon, the pyramid stands in the middle of the woods and is covered with grass. During the Utrechtse Heuvelrug holiday, it is a special and unique monument that is definitely worth a look.

Holiday activities Utrecht

There is plenty to do in Utrecht for young and old. For example, you can go to the Ouwehands zoo in Rhenen or to the zoo in Amersfoort. Something completely different, but very nice to do in Amersfoort, is to take a look at the Koppelpoort. You can take a tour here and learn all about the history of the gate.

For a unique experience you can take a canoe trip in the canals of Utrecht during your Utrecht holiday. Looking for more activities for a holiday in Utrecht? Then, in addition to canoeing, you can also go supping in the canals, where occasionally even a SUP clean-up is held. Or choose to rent an E-chopper. This is possible almost throughout Utrecht, because of the many different routes you can take. For example, you can drive over the Utrechtse Heuvelrug or through the Leusderheide.

Throughout the province there are also various bowling alleys, cinemas, escape rooms and arcades. Although these activities are not necessarily reminiscent of a green holiday in Utrecht, they are a good option if the weather is not on your side during your weekend away. You can also choose to go to Utrecht Central, where you can enjoy shopping at Hoog Catharijne. These holiday activities Utrecht will make your holiday complete.
