Moving to Utrecht as an expat
The charming and quaint city of Utrecht was constructed around the famous Dom Tower, the tallest church tower in the Netherlands, which is located right at the heart of the old city centre, along with several Gothic-styled monuments that stand witness to the Utrechts’ rich history which is believed to date back as far as the 3rd century.
To add to the city’s magic, the canals of Utrecht are nothing like anywhere else in the world. Thanks to their design with quays and wharf cellars, the canal sides double as terraces on the water for events, bars, and restaurants, during the warmer days and some impressively aesthetic scenes beneath fall leaves and winter’s snow.
In terms of business and job opportunities, Utrecht has 8 main strong sectors which are finance, ICT, healthcare and life sciences, sustainability, business services, logistics, startups, and the creative industry. So why choose Utrecht as your destination? Well, if you’re a lover of culture and centrality matters to you, but Amsterdam sounds like it’s a bit much, then Utrecht is definitely an alternative to consider.
