Utrecht plus ?? beginning of July with family

Jump to last reply

My husband and two children ages 10 and 12 will be traveling to the Netherlands as part of my husband's business trip. We will have 4.5 days, 2 of which will be in Utrecht where his meeting will be. I have been searching on these forums on how we might spend the 2.5 days before his meeting - We arrive in Amsterdam early afternoon on Sunday and need to be in Utrecht Tuesday night.

I am looking outside of Amsterdam to explore on this trip, and am looking for a base for the first two nights and advice on what to do with those 2.5 days. My kids and I will be on our own in Utrecht and I can travel from there while my husband is working, so for the first part of the trip I am looking for a base city to stay and ideas which would not be overlapped with potential travels for when we stay in Utrecht. I was looking on a map and considering either the area around Hoorn/Enkhuizen, or Geithoorne area. The area around Maastricht looks amazing as well -I am also interested in Delft - I'm not sure which of these to see with my husband as a family, and which to save for when he is working, making trips out of Utrecht. Thanks for your help! I think I am trying to see it all in such a short time and need to focus!

We would be interested in Museums, some walking tours of towns/cities, canal rides - my kids are flexible and very excited about this. We are interested in some small and traditional Dutch towns, landscape and architecture as well. I don't think they would do well "aimlessly wandering" for hours and hours (which my husband and I would love!).

Also, a recommendation on a fun and interesting hotel for the first two nights would be great.
