About When in Utrecht

We hope to inspire you – locals, expats and travellers alike – who are just as keen and passionate about Utrecht. When in Utrecht is a personal pocket book, or diary, where we will keep notes on everything that is happening here. From food to places to shop, drink and sleep. And grab a coffee, we won’t forget that.
