Moving to Utrecht

Utrecht, located on the banks of the River Rhine, has been the beating heart of religious life in the Netherlands since the 8th century. Now it’s a resolutely modern city, and a diverse university town, which wears its history proudly. The centre of Utrecht – originally a medieval fortified city – is surrounded by water in the form of canals. This area, dominated by the Dom tower provides endless possibilities for wandering, contemplating the world with a cup of coffee, or exploring the historical roots of this quintessentially Dutch city.

So what’s it like to live in Utrecht? We asked some clients we’ve helped move to the city. Here’s what they have to say:

A Delightful Place to Live

BBC travel declared that Utrecht is the 4th happiest place to live in the world and living in the city bears this out. It’s a big city but it feels like a small town. Life is relaxed. Utrecht’s residents are easy-going, friendly, and helpful when you first move in. All in all, Utrecht is a great place to live.

A Compact Size

Even though Utrecht is the fourth largest city in the Netherlands, it’s compact in size and therefore very effortless to get a broad sense of the city in a short space of time. Thanks to an extensive pedestrian only zone throughout Utrecht, you can navigate the whole city easily on foot.

Café & Restaurant Terrace Vibe

Utrecht is home to one of the largest outdoor terraces in Europe. Canal wharfs and various squares serve as restaurants, bars and cafés. When a great location is matched with delicious food from the Netherlands, Europe and across the world this is a very special experience.

Utrecht’s Unique Canals

The unique wharfs of Utrecht are now home to craft shops, restaurants, café’s, boutiques – all of which still hold tribute to its former glory and significance as an important trade centre. Be sure to take in the cities’ aesthetic in style by taking a boat ride along the canal – it’s truly a jewel worth exploring.

The Hub of the Dutch Rail Network

Utrecht train station is one of the busiest in the Netherlands, with an average of 900 train journeys from Utrecht on a working day. Residents of Utrecht have said to really benefit from such an effective rail network. From Utrecht, you’re less than half an hour away from Amsterdam and Schipol airport.
