Utrecht : Michelin's recommendations
The main town in the province of the same name, Utrecht is a lively place. Its maze of steets still maintains a certain intimacy and its many historic buildings bear witness to the rich history of the town. The picturesque quays of Utrecht, located below street level, allow cafés to set up their terraces there from the first rays of the sun. Utrecht is also a religious metropolis (the Catholic Primate of the Netherlands lives there), an intellectual (university) and a business centre.
