Utrecht op Zondag  (3 Answers)


Mijn ouders gaan op zondag 20 November met een bus naar de Verzamelaarsbeurs in Utrecht.

Een aantal van de echtgenotes die meegaan, zijn niet zo erg geinteresseerd in die beurs, en die zouden liever in het centrum gaan wandelen (winkelen ?).

Weet er iemand of er op zondag ook winkels open zijn in Utrecht?

Dan kunnen we dit alvast meegeven met de dames, en kunnen ze hun verwachtingspatroon daar een beetje op instellen

Vriendelijke groet - Filip

utrecht train station shopping  (3 Answers)

I was in Utrecht 2 weeks ago. Whenever I go to the Netherlands I shop in a store called DIDI. While walking through the Utrecht train station, I spotted a DIDI Outlet Store! I was thrilled to find it and went in. I found out I had 5 minutes till the store closed and with my husband we picked out as much as I could try on in that time.

I am wondering if I could call the store and get them to send some stuff to the USA for me? Do you think it's a long shot and how can I get the email or any contact information for the store? Hmmm ....

Your thoughts ...

From Utrecht to Frankfurt by bus  (14 Answers)


I'm Venelin and I need your help ! In 29th October I'll be in Utrecht for concert. After the show or early in the morning I must catch train or bus to Frankfurt, from where in 11:05 I'll catch train to Göppingen.

I found in a train "Utrecht - Frankfurt Main", but it arrives in Frankfurt in 10:50 - 15 minutes before the train for Göppingen departure.

So I would ask you, please, do you know where could I search for buses to Frankfurt?

Thank you in advance!

Hi Everyone,
I will be coming to Utrecht from Amsterdam in 2 weeks to see a concert in the Tivoli. I would like to stay in Utrecht as I have never been before even though I used to live in Amsterdam.

I also read about the zandpond houseboats. I would like to visit this area but I wonder is it sage area to travel? I am not interested in ladies but just do not want to find any trouble. I am sensible person who can avoid all trouble. Is this far from the Tivoli or central station?
Thank you in advance for all your help
Thanks, Paul

Utrecht budget accommodation  (3 Answers)

Greetings VT'ers!

I'm going to study in Utrecht for a year, but my flight arrives 6 days before my room is available, so I am looking for the best choice to stay at those few days considering a budget that didn't include such expense at first. So far, I have done some research and found out 2 cheap options: Hostel B&B Utrecht City Center and Strowis Budget Hostel. Could anyone give me any advice, opinion or tip about these options (or any other if available) so I can take a better informed decision? I will be greatly thankful for your asnwer.
Best regards,
