The best of two worlds aptly describes the Utrecht region. On the one hand, there is the relaxing outdoor Utrecht, with woods, rivers and seemingly endless polder landscape. On the other, there is lively urban Utrecht, with bustling outdoor cafés, museums filled with stunning works of art and colourful festivals. It is easy to experience both in a single visit, because they are never more than 15 to 30 minutes apart. Naturally close to the city!
