Utrecht – Photo blog

by Pei Yu Lin

From Amsterdam Centraal to Utrecht is a short train ride – 20 minutes.

Remember to have some changes so you can use restrooms in a public place (this includes train stations, libraries, and tourist information centers) – .25 to .50 €.

Utrecht is the 4th largest city in the Netherlands and it has a rich history that goes back to Roman times.

Dom Cathedral – the highest medieval tower in the Netherlands

Beautiful canal

Restaurants on a canal

Dom Cathedral

Inside the Domkerk – the oldest Saint Martin’s church in the Netherlands

There are 12 main churches open for people to visit and we visited 5 that day.
Forgive me for not able to remember the name of this church because of the difficulties understanding Dutch and all that.

It is gorgeous.

About netherlanders2010

We are 21 students, one teacher, and a few info-groupies on a study abroad program in the Netherlands from August 22-September 17 2010. We will be working with faculty and researchers from the Virtual Knowledge Studio, the Erasmus Studio, and the Continuous Access to Cultural Heritage (CATCH) in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, and Hilversum, to study the ways in which research informs design in information systems and practice in the Netherlands. Plus, we'll spend a lot of time wandering around, going to libraries, museums, and the Oude Sluis, and doing whatever strikes our individual and collective fancies. Alstublieft!
