Utrecht has a lot of canals, which can be explored in several ways. One can have a canal cruise, which includes historical and cultural comments during the trip. It is also possible to explore Utrecht by canal bike or by canoe. One could even rent a canal boat with a silent engine with a group of people. The canal cruise is especially interesting, because it focuses on specific architectural details which one wouldn’t notice on land, and it connects the water to the history of our wonderful medieval city.
