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.

Trajectum Lumen is a light art trail, which is free for all to enjoy 365 nights a year. You can get guided tours, but the is also a app available or a map. It's a nice walk through the center of Utrecht. An other way to explore the city center.

I honestly didn't get the point.. I have downloaded an app and followed it, but I saw nothing impressive.. Really. Some of the attractions on our path were not even working.. Maybe my expectations were too high

It is the best way to discover Utrecht by night. I do the tour myself several times a year! Really easy to have the map online (or with the apps). Every time friends visit me in Utrecht, I do it with them. Every people living in Utrecht should have done it at least once!

Liked: a fun way to explore this town at night, some really good light displays, some so-so. Disliked: a few of the light arrows pointed the wrong way, which meant there was some back-tracking. There were fewer actual displays than I expected, but it was still a fun way to spend an hour or so after dinner.

A lovely way to organize your night walk around it. So many different ideas and looks incredibly cute. Don't forget to check their website and how it all started.

I've lived in Utrecht for 25 years now, and I explored the city, but this tour could still surprise me. It pointed out some (light)works of art I had never seen before. I would not recommend this tour for first-time tourists, because I think it's nice to just walk and experience the city if time is limited. But if you... More
