Recommended bars/restaurants

Bar: Staiway to Heaven is owned by a famous Dutch DJ, and several Stones Day are held in this Cafe.

Location on the Mariaplaats. It has got a lot of rock memorabilities hanging on the walls, Guitars and for instance a golden record of Steel Wheels !

There are a lot of restaurants in centre Utrecht, different kitchens and nationalities. Many of them are at the canals (which begin just behind Vredenburg). The canals in Utrecht are unique because you can actually sit at water level, as opposed to Amsterdam and other cities. Nice in the summer.

A very good chinese restaurant, probably one of the best in the country, faces Vredenburg: Het Paradijs.

Meeting place for fans

Rockcaf� Stairway to heaven. Near Vredenburg at the Mariaplaats (just ask for it).
