I spent an enjoyable afternoon and evening in Utrecht a few years ago. Wonderful city, thanks for posting.

It is a really nice city. Less touristic than Amsterdam but more relaxed and pleasant imo. Lots of interesting buildings, nice shops and a historic centre. Lots of restaurants and bars also 🙂

I was on my way to Amsterdam, it was late and I needed rest for my family. We found a hotel in Utrecht and explored the city the next day. I liked the quietness, the quaintness of the older part, and the modern touches throughout. I also like Amsterdam but it was becoming so touristy and noisy.

I'm glad you liked Utrecht. I fully agree on your observation. Utrecht is like a smaller, more relaxed version of Amsterdam. As is my hometown Amersfoort a smaller, even more relaxed version of Utrecht 🙂

I still regret choosing the live in England rather than the Netherlands when it was time to go to university.
