Living in Utrecht Region

In the beating heart of the Netherlands, you can find the province of Utrecht. Out of the 12 Dutch provinces, Utrecht is most centrally located. With its 26 municipalities (amongst which also the municipality of Utrecht, yes it’s confusing) and over 1.3 million inhabitants, the province is the oldest, smallest and one of the most densely populated provinces in the Netherlands. Because of its central location, easy-going character and healthy and urban lifestyle, it is a popular place to settle.

Nevertheless, life in a different country can be different from what you are used to. New language, different culture and unfamiliar rules. On this page we try to inform you as much as possible about all issues you may encounter in your new Dutch life, such as housing, education, transportation, culture, and more.
