Utrecht is a city where you can visit a market every day of the week. The centre of the city is host to three large markets: the Lapjesmarkt (fabric market), the Bloemenmarkt (flower market) and the large general market held at Vredenburg.
For indoor shopping, visit De Bijenkorf (St Jacobsstraat 1); a beautiful department store that stocks the best brands in fashion, shoes, accessories, kitchenware and furniture. Or explore the Hoog Catharijne (linked to Utrecht Central Station); Hoog Catharijne is believed to be the biggest shopping centre in Holland. Plus, Utrecht’s city centre has so much to offer. The Lijnmarkt is a bustling, busy street with many fashion and shoe shops and the Oudegracht boasts plenty of special fashion and jewellery shops.
