Vredenburgkwartier - Utrecht's shopping heart

Coming to shop in Utrecht? Then you have to go to the Vredenburg District. With all of the department stores and speciality stores, it's nearly impossible to leave the city empty-handed. In addition, the central Vredenburg Square transforms three times per week into a lively market, where you can buy fresh fish, vegetables, fruit, cheese and hot caramel waffles.

Done shopping? Then finish up your great day of shopping in a charming café or restaurant. Go downstairs to the waterside wharves or tuck into a romantic alleyway to grab a bite. Our favourite is the cosy Drieharingstraat, between Vredenburg and the Oudegracht. From tapas to sushi, and from hamburgers to pasta, there's always something delicious here.
