The Utrecht Archives

Het Utrechts Archief (The Utrecht Archives) constitutes the memory of the city and the province Utrecht with dozens of kilometers of archives, half a million of photographs, films, pictures and an extensive library. We want to collect the sources of Utrecht’s history with the aim of making them publicly available.
