Whether you’ve already been to Utrecht once, or not at all. There is always a reason to visit the cathedral city, especially this autumn. How about climbing the Dom Tower or taking the elevator up, eating at cozy restaurants, enjoying the cool light projections or attending a cool concert in Tivoli.

Actually there is still so much to do for just a day trip, so why not stay overnight to sleep? If you are still there in the evening, you can immediately take a nice walk along the light projections in the city of Lumen and Color de Stad.
