Shopping - The Netherlands' shopping city

The charming old city centre of Utrecht is a true shopper's paradise. You'll find popular department stores, small boutiques, trendy retail concepts and bustling markets.

Look for special second-hand treasures in the antique stores on the Oudegracht and in the Museumkwartier. Or browse the boutiques in the Voorstraat and the Schoutenstraat for design items from young fashion designers. For the loveliest of home decorations, you need to be in the Zadelstraat. And you'll find trendy, affordable clothing on the Steenweg at the familiar fashion chain stores.

And you know what's really great? The stores in Utrecht are open seven days a week, and the shopping here is terrific, even in bad weather: Utrecht’s Central Station runs seamlessly into Hoog Catharijne, the largest indoor shopping mall in the Netherlands. Plenty of reasons to make Utrecht your next shopping destination!
