Wednesday, July 20, 2011 I spent a day in Utrecht, the city where I have lived for over nine years.
It was my intention to visit a museum, but it became beautiful weather, so I decided to make a town walk.
After a delicious Latte Macchiato I walked via the ‘Kromme Nieuwegracht’, the ‘Nieuwegracht’ and the ‘Oude Gracht’ to the ‘Zadelstraat’ for a visit to the Cathedral of St Martin (Dom Kerk ~ Domchurch) – a wonderful walk!

On this image a part of the cloister garden of the Cathedral – called Pandhof – which is surrounded by a very picturesque Gothic cloister. Over the centuries this courtyard has been used for funfairs, as a waiting place for soldiers and for a local meat market. In its present form it is mainly a creation of the architect Cuypers (1896).

The Domchurch, Utrecht is in the “Top 100 of the Dutch UNESCO monuments”, a list of the valuable historical monuments in the Netherlands, established by the National Service for Archaeology, Cultural Landscape and Monuments.
