Utrecht is less than 30 minutes from Amsterdam by train so we decide to do a day trip on our most recent visit. We wound our way from the train station, through Hoog Catharijne into the heart of the old city.
Treaty of Utrecht that helped end the lingering war between several European entities including Spain, Great Britain, France, Portugal, Savoy and the Dutch Republic. The occasion was marked in several locations around the city. The Peace Connection bus brings music and good cheer.
We emerged along one of the canals that runs through the heart of the city.
We noted the path and doors right along the edge of the canal and discovered a staircase where we could descend to that level.
Utrecht Danse was on the weekend we were in town. There were amateur and professional performances scattered all about town.
We enjoyed a late lunch at Eten & Drinken.
The restaurant was warm and cozy.De Leckere craft brew...
Zonnekoningen was getting set to perform.
