UTRECHT CELEBRATES ITS 900TH ANNIVERSARY
The last day of VIV Europe 2022 – June 2 – Utrecht completes 900 years of acquiring its city rights. What a lovely coincidence!
To celebrate the occassion, the city has put together an excellent programme of activities and exhibits that will start from June 2 itself and go on until November. How about an evening staircase tour in and on the Dom Tower with a fantastic view of the historic city from the highest church tower in the Netherlands? City tours in the evening with a guide. Or a boat trip through the beautiful canals of Utrecht?
The theme of Utrecht’s birthday is ‘City Without Walls’ – open, involved, hospitable and connected.
These activities can be visited before, during and after the VIV Europe exhibit. An ideal way for an informal get-together with business relations, a team outing or simply relax. Book your activities in advance to organise your day or the weekend following VIV Europe 2022 and enjoy both the business and the city in its marvellous celebration mode.
You can also find all the information inside VIV Europe exhibition, Hall 9 – 9A001 or discover the programme online:
