The tunnel of colours

Spring is finally arriving in Utrecht, so what’s better than going for a walk in the city centre? If you are already familiar with the beauty of the Domtoren and the canals of the Oudegracht, and you are looking for something different, the Ganzenmarkt tunnel is the place where you should go.

It is also called the tunnel of colours because the lights are constantly changing in different colours, creating a psychodelic fairytale landscape that makes me think of Alice falling down the rabbit hole.

But it is not only the fascinating tunnel what amazes me; it is what comes after walking through it. An open door to the astonishing view of the canal where there are chairs and tables to enjoy a good chat with a friend.

This tunnel represents a proper entry from the main door to Utrecht’s heart. All the different shades and tones of every colour are the perfect metaphore to describe the multicultural environment that surrounds this never stopping city. Slide in, there’s no time to waste!
