Utrecht Weekend Guide 25, 26 & 27 October

Is the wine refrigerated? Did you buy some snacks? Did the weekend already start?! For those who don’t want to stay at home, but want to go outside this weekend, I have made a list of tips. Have fun in Utrecht!


Dark Side of Utrecht Free Tour

Departure from the Dom Tower, for a free tour of Utrecht, which tells about the dark secrets of the city. You’re not afraid of a bit of excitement, are you? Utrecht is of course stunning in this autumn sun and falling leaves, but after sunset there are many more stories to discover. Are you coming with us?

Soia Silent Disco

Evacuate the dance floor, it’s the weekend! Singing along to the best house and disco tunes, not too loud, huh? It’s Silent… Two channels with different hits, do you challenge your friend to a dance battle? If it makes you hungry and thirsty, you can order delicious bock beers and fine dishes from the autumn menu. The headphones can be rented for 9 euros.

Maximus Oktoberfest

Jawohl! The Oktoberfest at Maximus Brauerei. It’s still October and we still love beer. An Octoberfest as it should be: with mugs of beer, dressed in your lederhosen, singalong to the best German schlagersongs. The brewery is going crazy with the DJ’s of Die Partyknüller! Cheers! Oh yes, try your best on your outfit, there are prizes to be won: the most crazy outfit and the most outrageous couple. Jetzt gehts los.

Night of the Night

If I’m on top of the Dom… Every year, environmental and nature federations organise the Night of the Night. An evening and night in the year when companies and buildings turn off their lights, Utrecht in the dark! And you can experience that from the Dom Tower. At 18.30 children can light up the dark city with their lanterns, after which there are three tours for the adults. Go and see this, during the last tour you will be up at the tower at midnight and you will see the most beautiful city of the Netherlands in pitch black. Tickets are 12,50 per person.

Sunday Assembly #Health

Would you like to end your weekend with a socially responsible Sunday morning? Then you can listen to a lecture by Jaap Seidell, professor of “Nutrition and Health” and director of the Department of Health Sciences at the Vrije Universiteit & the VU Medical Centre in Amsterdam. Jaap Seidel brings to light myths and misunderstandings about health and, for example, obesity. The Sunday Assembly is a monthly platform for science, comedy, live music, personal stories and cake! In addition to reflection and science, you can also enjoy music and conviviality. And you will be asked to bring your own cake, oh my pie!
