Discover student life and the city of Utrecht

Recommended by

“It’s hard to miss Fort Rijnauwen if you go on your morning runs around the forest in Amelisweerd. The history behind the walls adds a bit of character to the forest and its beautiful flora and fauna. The sunset walks there are amazing too, definitely check it out in the early months of May, when it’s the perfect weather”


“I love to take a walk in the countryside and enjoy the beautiful weather.”
