There are lots of cafes, bars and shops of all types (incl. antiques) along the canals, as well as more quiet areas, so there is something for everyone. Mostly it's less crowded than Amsterdam although in the centre it could get quite busy (beware of the cyclists). The old houses along the canals are beautiful. It's definitely a lovely walk.

The beautiful country-house has been converted into a small museum offering modern art in historic 18th century rooms.I enjoyed the historic "chinoiserie"wall papers and murals and stuffed birds and animals of the temporary expo.The wooded area around the country house is home to badgers,woodpeckers and other protected wildlife.Due to construction of a highway nearby there is increased media attention about this nature reserve and the threats to its trees by urban development.

We were staying in Amersfoort and caught the public bus to Bunschoten-Spakenburg. Spakenburg is an old fishing village which is now a bit inland, due to land reclamation. Just looking from the bus at the houses, churches, canals, and parks, was interesting. The Saturday Market in Spakenburg sells all the usual stuff of a Dutch open market. There are a lot of tourists in Spakenburg, and they are almost all Dutch. There are very few foreigners- which makes it more attractive to visit. We took the small tourist tram for a ride around Spakenburg- the commentary is only in Dutch, and the driver couldn't speak English- but it was fun. Afterwards, we did what the Dutch do- we had a herring (haring) with chopped onion (I think it was raw- delicious like sashimi) and then had an icecream.
I recommend visiting Spakenburg on a Saturday , or any other day.

One-of-a-kind Rietveld house. All of the downstairs rooms have an external door. The panels that closed at the end of the day are fantastic, cutting off part of the external light. A 30 minutes' walk from the center of town should not put you off. Entrance is a bit expensive, but includes the entrance fee to the Central Museum (on the same day). The tour includes an audio guide backed up by a well informed live guide.

The Dutch always had an ambivalent relationship with water. There are several museums on this topic in The Netherlands. However, the new Waterliniemuseum focusses on the way water was used as a defensive system, mostly against enemies coming from the east. The museum was opened in October 2015 and features some modern, attractive interactive presentations, for instance using Oculus Rift glasses to simulate a parachute jump over the country. Furthermore, it is beautifully located in the Fort Vechten. So, although the museum itself takes only about an hour to go through, the surrounding landscape could keep you busy for another. No setbacks? The only thing we can think of is the outside maquette of the Dutch river system. This is a major eye-catcher meant to be the biggest interactive of the museum. But, as we found out, it was out of order and needed to be repaired at the time we visited the museum. Surely this will be done anytime soon.

There is no better way to see Utrecht other than the Don Tower. I don’t get visitors from my home country frequently but as soon as someone comes I take him/her there. The Dom Tower has a history spread through several centuries but moreover it has a culture represented through 14 bells and old organ. It allows a great view over Utrecht and when the weather allows it Amsterdam can be seen.

Groot en aardig fort. Vooral de gracht er omheen en de daarbij behorende wandelpaden zijn mooi. Binnen in het fort kun je even rondkijken, maar is niet echt bijzonder.
