Highlights areas of the center which you usually never afford a second glance. Not to mention nice graphics and interesting experience.

The Trajectum Lumen route is well laid out, starting outside the Apollo Hotel you follow the orange LED arrows on the ground as they lead you around the old town. At various places along the route a blue eye shaped LED on the ground indicates an installation or light show. Pick up a free route map from one of the... More

Took a guided tour Saturday evening along the 'Trajectum Lumen' lighted works of art in the city center of Utrecht. The Tourist Information guide was able to explain the artist's thoughts behind their creations and also give some background on the places they were located. This certainly added a dimension to the experience. Main advantage of the Utrecht experience is... More

The Trajectum Lumen is an excellent idea but some of the installations are not once they once were... but it's still a worthwhile way of exploring the city

Part of our choice to go to Utrecht over other cities was the Trajectrum Lumen. Be sure you have a map in your preferred language, available at the Tourist Bureau which closes at 5PM. We were never able to get the app to work on either of our smart phones. It's a pleasant way to experience Utrecht at night and... More

Very innovative idea and a good location for a stroll after the dark - it takes you through the heart of historic Utrecht with many colourful displays and informative commentary along the way. There are many spots along the route to stop by for a drink or a meal (and the app even recommends some!) and it's a very pleasant... More

I really loved this interactive way of presenting the city at night! The app has some flaws (once the gps connection is lost, instead of retrieving the last known spot, it returns to the beginning of the map), but still provides you with some interesting facts about the several stop overs and corresponding art. Being in Utrecht for only 2... More

Recommend doing this tour on bike or on different evenings als locations are spread out a bit. It seems there are always some installations not working, but not always the smae ones. Some of the installations are wondrful, others I could do without but our guests did like them, so as with many things: ymmv.

This is something different. An ap guided free tour of a beautiful city made even more so by some wonderful light displays. Can be walked, but probably (like everything in Utrecht) best by bike. Great concept well delivered.
