    Small procession

    by Mique Written Nov 28, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Utrecht is still a bishopsdom but i never had given that so much attention. Untill i walked in on a small gathering of clergymen, the bishop himself (Someone told me who he was) and a whole lot of onlookers. Later on i learned that somewhere in the 17th century or so all rights to have processions and such on public streets had been banned. And that that right had only be reinstalled somehwere in the early 90's. i was astouned. But nowadays you can again walk into such an event, just as i did.

    Nice Walk

    by Mique Updated Jul 15, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: If you want to do some relaxing, some walking and getting away from the city centre..you can easily do that. There is a nice little park alongside the Vaartse Rijn on the city side. The Vaartse Rijn encloses almost or even a bit more then half the city centre.

    Opposite Catharijnesingel or Tolsteegsingel/Maliesingel

    Ledig Erf

    by Mique Written Jul 15, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: People refer to this location as Ledig Erf. One of the cafe's is indeed called 't Ledig Erf, the other is called De Poort. Both serve lunch and dinners. And you will have some difficulty spotting tourists here..

    Location: end of the Twijstraat/Tolsteegbrug

    Street scenery

    by Mique Updated Jul 14, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: In Utrecht there are so many hidden nooks, alleyways and general unknown spots that even after having lived there of a couple of years, i can still be very suprised.. So keep your eyes open and just wander through the city centre and everything around it

    This picture was taken when you walk from 't Ledig Erf to the city centre. And this little alley ends at the Oude Gracht. Just decend and follow your way to the city centre..

    Favorite thing: To know everything about Utrecht, what's going on and whats hot or what's not, just visit this page. It's in dutch, but some names are the same in every language and you will find words like hotels, restaurants, culture etc.

    Fondest memory: Being at the DOM and seeing all of Utrecht in the mist or in the sun. It's very beautiful then!

    Statues in houses

    by pieter_jan_v Written Jul 31, 2011

    Favorite thing: Many Utrecht houses have small statues in the outside walls.

    It really pays off to look at the gabels and outer walls of the center city houses.
