I convinced the German guys to visit Utrecht. Apparantly it’s only around 1 hour with the train. So we visit this first, before going to Berlin on the same day.
And although Utrecht is great, around half a day is enough to explore the city. I bet you can explore it more when you meet people, locals, who are willing to take you around.
The most beautiful things of Utrecht are the canals. Just like Amsterdam has, but Utrecht has it a bit more smaller, smaller scale. It’s truly amazing. Sad thing though is that I couldn’t find any rental boats to take to sail it. But strolling around is already tons of fun.
And yes.. also here we had a great time on one of the many terraces, enjoying our cold one. People are so nice here. They help you with the directions, and the waiters are very polite. We have an extraordinary time just being window shoppers.
