Discover student life and the city of Utrecht

Recommended by

“By far, my favorite place to enjoy music in a concert hall or a restaurant during the day and their many club-events during the night.”


“Apart from parties, events such as the International Comedy Festival Utrecht are also organized in Tivoli.”


“Lemongrass Chai Latte at Tivoli’s café is to die for! Also, I’ll never forget when my mom ordered a ginger tea there and they brought her a huge chunk of ginger in a hot water… We then realized that in the Netherlands a mint tea, for example, is just hot water with mint leaves. Don’t you just love learning new things about different countries?”
