What people are saying about Utrecht

A very beautiful castle - definitely worth seeing. In the castle itself there were always tour guides in the individual rooms, who explained things to us personally (also in German). Was definitely worth a visit. Unfortunately, it rained here, so we could only look at the outdoor area for a very short time. The staff is very friendly and helpful!!

This is a BEAUTIFUL castle. SO ornately detailed. 10000 times worth the visit! Try to go for the Christmas Festival/Market. The employees at the Castle are amazingly knowledgeable and passionate about sharing the history with you. Kind and friendly. FIVE star experience.

An absolute must, get the train to the museum from Utrecht Central if you can it’s worth it

We loved this! We also came at the time of the Christmas Market. So fun!

Pristine condition (almost newly built) with great family history.
