At the mention of the Netherlands, people often think of Amsterdam or the windmills of Holland – an unfortunate thing, given how beautiful and historical the rest of the country’s cities can be. Take Utrecht, for example. One of the Netherlands’ oldest cities, this laid-back city is home to numerous examples of Dutch history, heritage, and culture, such as its medieval town, cathedrals, and numerous museums. With numerous canals running through the city, one could even call Utrecht a more historical, rustic version of Amsterdam.

Now that you’ve gotten to know Utrecht, why not explore all the wonders it has to offer? Here are 10 unparalleled Airbnb vacation rentals for you to see the best of this city.

Curl up next to a companion on the double bed, or sleep alone on the daybed in the corner. By day, go green with your travel means–borrow a bike from your host and whiz around the city like a local!
