Canals area, Utrecht

4.9
Visit Canals area to see the urban waterways the country is known for. The canals in Utrecht are similar to those in Amsterdam and other Dutch cities. Take the stairs down to water level and stroll along the canals. Stop at one of the many restaurants with outdoor seating and enjoy pannekoeken (Dutch pancakes) or other Dutch delicacies. To learn more about the city's history and explore it from a typically Dutch vantage point, take a boat tour. Plan my Utrecht trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
