A different way to visit Utrecht. Great fun, sore arms and potential sunburns Jun 09, 2008
A different way to visit Utrecht, if we have foreign visitors we like to show them our city like this.

A little outside the city centre, you find a boat and canoo rental service, located at the old, slow river "de Kromme Rijn" wich runs through the city centre. You'll be able to paddle through the "Maliesingel", a beautiful, wide and green canal that circles around the city walls, or the "Oude Gracht" where you'll pass several terraces to see and be seen. And if you look a little further you may find the entry to the "Nieuwe Gracht", a much smaller canal, and see the funny sculptures in the stones supporting the old lantern posts (among others the seven sins).
The Nieuwe Gracht, a quiet passage…
