Utrecht Lumen

Discover the city in the dark

When daylight leaves the streets of Utrecht, the illuminated stories of Utrecht Lumen come to life. The artworks of Utrecht Lumen shed a unique light on the history, residents, function, or symbolism of a building or location.

Many works of art are located on the unique buildings along the canals. From the water, you catch a unique view of all the splendor that sparkles in the dark.

And as if that weren’t attractive enough, you can sail this winter at almost 50% discount. We arrange the chocolate milk or gl├╝hwein. Will we see you soon?
