Welcome to Utrecht, the beating heart of The Netherlands!
Utrecht is the most populous city of the province of Utrecht. It is located in the eastern corner of the Randstad conurbation and is the fourth largest city in the Netherlands. The people, language, and culture of the Netherands are referred to as “Dutch”.
The Netherlands is a small country so many attractions and sights can be reached within a day trip from Utrecht and our capital: Amsterdam, is just 30 minutes away by train and is home to several famous museums such as the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijks Museum. If you are more into beaches then you are lucky because we have a long coast line and the most famous beach at Zandvoort can be reached by train. A good source for finding interesting sights and attractions is the Wikitravel-page of the Netherlands.
The Netherlands have a temperate maritime climate influenced by the North Sea and Atlantic Ocean, with cool summers and moderate winters. Daytime temperatures vary from 2°C-6°C in the winter and 17°C-20°C in the summer. Since the country is small there is little variation in climate from region to region, although the marine influences are less inland. Rainfall is distributed throughout the year with a dryer period from April to September. Information about the current weather in Utrecht can be found easily on the Internet, one suggestion is to check AccuWeather.com.
The Netherlands is easily reachable from virtually any country in the world through its main international transport hub: Schiphol Airport, which is located just outside of Amsterdam. For visitors from neighboring countries it is also possible to travel over land, either by train (Thalys from France & Belgium, ICE from Germany), or by car of course. From Schiphol Airport it is a short 30 minute train ride to Utrecht Central Station. The train platform is located right underneath Schiphol Plaza. Trains run every 15 minutes. Train tickets cost approx. €8,- (one-way). As Utrecht Central Station is the heart of the railway network in the Netherlands it is also easily reachable from any other Dutch city.
