Inspiring neighbourhoods

Do you like street art and cool hotspots? Or would you rather visit local shops and artist’s studios? Then you should not omit to visit De Nieuwe Stad (The New Town), a former industrial estate and now a center bubbling with creativity only a stone’s throw away from the city center. What used to be the home of the Prodent Factory and an old soap factory is now an exciting and seriously photogenic quarter.

The charming old city centre of Utrecht is a true shopper's paradise. You'll find popular department stores, small boutiques, trendy retail concepts and bustling markets.Look for special second-hand treasures in the antique stores on the Oudegracht and in the Museumkwartier. Or browse the boutiques in the Voorstraat and the Schoutenstraat for design items from young fashion designers. For the loveliest of home decorations, you need to be in the Zadelstraat. And you'll find trendy, affordable clothing on the Steenweg at the familiar fashion chain stores.
