    What if I told you that there is a church where you are welcomed with a delicious beer?
    We'd all go to mass more often... That's for sure!
    This is a beautiful brewery located in what used to be the old St. Jacob's church. You can taste the local beer called Jopen which is brewed right here or try other local beers brewed from medieval recipes and enjoy yourself in this unusual setting.
    I suggest you stop by for something to drink, but lunch will be at another very special place...
    Opening hours: Monday – Thursday, Sunday: 10:00 – 23:00 Friday – Saturday: 10:00 – 01:00

    This is one of the most beautiful corners of Utrecht! I love this part of the city...
    After lunch, I recommend that you cross on the other side of the canal and walk along the promenade alongside the canal. It's a very lovely path, full of shops and a lot of charm.
    You'll see that it's where most of the shops are concentrated. But don't linger too long, there's still a lot to visit.

    I'm crazy about these sweets, I admit it!
    If you visit these factories you will learn about the history behind these siroopwaffels (they are typical from Holland and were created here in Gouda), you will discover the process of how they are made, and you will get to taste one at the end of the visit.
    Opening hours: Monday – Saturday: 10:00 – 18:00 Sunday: Closed
    Important to consider: The visit is supposed to take about one hour, but in our case it took us only 30 minutes to walk along the entire factory. There were no English audio guides, so a person from the staff explained everything to us while we were walking around.
    Here you'll find more information, and you can get your tickets in advance.
