I keep posting about the great restaurants in Utrecht, and most of them are located alongside the channels.
Well, they are for sure one of the main attractions of our city. In summer they are full with boats and ducks. These pictures are taken in winter. But it is still nice and peaceful.
As you can see the restaurants are very close to the water, the entrance is downstairs, and up is the road for the cars and pedestrians.
You can rent boats, or buy the customary boat trip along the channels. During the night they get more spectacular because of the lights used to highland them.
In the summer , the place near the watter of full with tables and chairs so you can eat outside.
