Railway MuseumIn reality, this fascinating railway museum is housed in one of Utrecht 's old railway stations and is located in the eastern part of the city. The museum has recently been revamped and a new building has been opened next to the railway station. Inside the museum you can find a vast array of railway memorabilia, exhibits and revamped station rooms. The museum is divided into four different parts – Dream Journeys, Steel Monsters, The Workshop and The Great Discovery. Besides the main rooms, there is also a model railway, a children's playground. This is a wonderful place to visit, and the whole family will enjoy history and visual displays.
The Dom Tower of UtrechtThis massive structure towers over the city and is one of the most emblematic landmarks of Utrecht. The tower is different from the Cathedral of Saint Martin and was built in 1321. At a height of 112.5 m, the Dom Tower is towering over the center of Utrecht and can be seen for miles around. The tower includes a set of 14 bells that weigh a total of 32,000, at times the bells are still ringed by a group of dedicated ringers. There is a visitor center where you can find a comprehensive history of the tower and a gift shop, and it is also possible to have tours that allow you to click.
Centraal MuseumIt is the main museum in Utrecht and was originally founded in 1838. The museum displays an outstanding collection of works of art primarily by well-known local artists such as Joachim Wtewael and Gerard Van Honthorst. Although historical art is the main attraction, the collection also includes contemporary art, fashion and applied art. Another fascinating feature is an old ship named the Utrecht Ship, which can be seen in the museum's cellar. This museum is a great place to visit and displays such as Roman coins from the Limes area, a look at law and order, and a number of medieval sculptures ensure that this is the case.
Utrecht CanalsAmsterdam is not the only city in the Netherlands to have a network of canals – Utrecht has an extensive system of canals, most of which are lined with traditional houses and have a beautiful area to walk through. The canals can be found all over the city center and are literally magical. There are several small boat tours that run on some canals, but it's also a fantastic idea to simply walk along the streets and take them all on foot. Small narrow houses in different colors line the water, several of which have doors opening right into the canal. Most of the canals are below the level of the streets that add water.
Museum SpeelklokThe clock museum is a magical place full of entertainment and wonderful items that will delight people of all ages. The museum is devoted to clockwork and wind-up artifacts such as clocks, musical instruments and barrel organs.

Utrecht streets and Dom tower, Netherlands
St Martin’s CathedralSt. Martin's is the largest cathedral in Utrecht and was once connected to the Dom Tower, but since then the nave has collapsed and the two buildings have been separate. This magnificent cathedral has stood since the Middle Ages and was once the largest church in the Netherlands. The architecture of the cathedral is mainly Gothic and reflects the style found in France. The remains of the church today are the choir and the transept, and the area that once acted as the main nave is now a square full of trees.
Utrecht Botanical GardensThe famous Botanical Gardens are located in the University of Utrecht in the eastern part of the city, just off the A28 route. Although the gardens are on the outskirts of the city, they are certainly worth a visit. The gardens include a variety of fountains, plants , trees, and a beautiful array of butterflies. The butterfly greenhouse is absolutely breathtaking with a variety of species such as Morpho and Atlas Moths. The actual gardens are divided into six different parts, including a rock garden, a fortress with different flowers, and a garden with different flowers.
Janskerkhof Flower MarketEvery Saturday there is a huge flower market in Utrecht and it offers a greater range of flowers and seeds to buy than the mostly tulip-oriented market in Amsterdam. The market is held near the Janskerkhof church, which is a short walk from the Dom Tower and the main square. The quality and the cut of the flowers available here are simply incredible and you can buy a wide range of different species along with different potted plants. The smells and colors are very attractive and it's a perfect place to take pictures, soak up the atmosphere and maybe take home a little souvenir.
Sint WillibrordkerkThe St. Willibrord Church is a simple and beautiful example of neo-Gothic architecture and is a Roman Catholic church situated near both the Janskerk and Dom Tower buildings in central Utrecht. The church was built in the 1800s, making it a relatively new religious building for the city. The exterior of this building features a tall, narrow design that makes it stand out while the interior is as luxurious and opulent as one would imagine. The beautiful interior is truly a delight, and the bright colors and endless stretches of artwork will leave you astounded.
Castle de HaarThis really is a fairy-tale castle – set in the lush gardens and half surrounded by a moat and a lake, it's a secret gem. The buildings feature a Neo-Gothic theme with a handful of pointed turrets and crenulations. The beautiful interior of the castle contains many wooden sculptures and collections of artwork and tapestries. The large gardens are just as impressive as the castles, and the theme is close to that of Versailles.
