    By car or train. At the trainstation you will see a surprise, the station is also a big shoppingmall!
    By car, bicycle, bus or sneltram (quick tram). On the picture you can see the rails of this tram. It drives very fast. Never come nearby when it drives by. It's dangerous.

  • When you want to go downtown...

    When you want to go downtown Utrecht, the train might be your best choice. Since Utrecht is in the heart of the country almost every other big city has a direct connection to Utrecht. When you come from Amsterdam Airport you have to change trains at Duivendrecht. The train stops in the city center. Going by car is possible but parking is usually expensive
    There are a lot of so-called 'Stadsbussen' (city buses). They cover most of the city. Renting a bike at the train station may be a nice alternative!

    The city center is small and beautiful and the best way to get around there is just walking.

    Train from anywhere else....

    Train from anywhere else. Utrecht hass no airport so a train is necessary from Amsterdam or Rotterdam. If youa re coming from Germany or other neighbouring countries then a car is OK too but I always prefer trains.
    Utrecht is not a very big city so walking around is easy going. If you have a bike then bring that on the train! There are boat tours similar to those in Amsterdam, including a Kerk Cruise which takes you around all the churches of the city.

    If you come by car to Utrecht,...

    If you come by car to Utrecht, please do not attempt to drive through the city centre, its impossible if you do not know the city. Most of the roads are oneway roads or they are all closed down because they are working on the roads. The best thing to do is to go to a parking and leave your car there, all parkings are situated at the beginning of the city centre. Or if your not coming by car, take the train to Utrecht central station, which is called hoog catherijne. Hoog Catherijne is a huge shopping centre, with a lot of different shops, its nice, but don't walk there alone at night, as it is filled with drunks and junks, they wont harm you, but you just dont feel at ease alone.

    We used the bus to go to Kinderdijk. The busses are very comfortable and I found the drivers extremely helpful. You can buy your tickets on the bus if you do not have strippenkaarten

    It is very easy to rent a bike in utrecht. Next to centraal station is a big renting company. An easy way to get around whilst getting in good excercise.

    We used the bus service to get to central station but also went on a round route trip to see parts of Utrecht where we would not have gone. A trip cost us 1.60 euro.

    the tramway in the centre of Utrecht

    Utrecht is a big city and therefore the trams give you the possibility to drive rather fast through the city.
