Hoog Catharijne is a big shopping centre within Utrecht. It is really close to the railway station and other transport links including buses and trams.

There are a wide variety of shops within the centre including Primark, Lego Store, Jumbo and some high end stores as well.

Fortunately there is air conditioning in the centre which is well received when it's hot outside.

This is a large indoor shopping center located at the train Central Station. Very easy to find from anywhere in the city center. Great for rainy or cold weather time to shop. They have all types of shops including grocery, speciality foods, bakeries, pharmacies, clothing and shoe stores, and many restaurants and cafes. Everything you need in one place. Not opened on Sunday so plan to visit on other days.

How did a shopping mall make the attractions list of Tripadvisor. I don't know, but it was easier to navigate toward Hoog Catharijne than to the train station when I got ready to go back to Amsterdam. And since I went through the mall I discovered that much of it was being remodeled for new merchants. I also found something else I would never have expected to find in a shopping mall--a shoe repair shop, where I was able to replace a shoelace which I had broken.

This mall is directly connected to Utrecht Centraal and lets you traverse a main thoroughfare on the way to the center of the city and its attractions. Hoog Catherijne won't be surprising if you find it in the US or any Asian shopping capital, but since it's in Utrecht, a city full of historic buildings, it's quite unexpected.

The mall contains a lot of stores and brands you'll find in the Netherlands and abroad. I haven't checked the prices but for a more charming shopping experience, you can walk a little further into the city center and shop at the old buildings/rowhouses that contain H&M, Mango, Zara, C&A, Nike and other modern brands.

The centrally located mall is adjoining the Utrecht central railway station having an access to the station from the main street. Large number of shops and a variety of cafes - we managed a steal for the missus - a few jackets, at Primart.

A reasonably large shopping centre attached to Utrecht central station. It is light and airy inside and contains fairly standard high street/mall branded shops, along with supermarkets. There are no stand out shops than you can find on any high street or even elsewhere in Utrecht. Probably not worthwhile for a seperate visit for this reason and it is an easy connection to the train station

A nice, fairly new, Shopping Mall, almost next to the station. It was quite busy whenever you choose to visit, during our few days in Utrecht in October. Plenty of shops cafes restaurants, even a hotel.

And it was a useful way to get to the old part of the town and the canals area, from our hotel, just down from the station. Missing all the cyclists as well !!

Hoog Catharijne is ideally situated for local residents and for tourists. Connected to the Utrecht Central Train Station by a walkway/square only metres apart. Hoog Catharijne is modern, bright and upmarket. It has a large diverse selection of shops and also features a huge MediaMarkt (electronics) and a Electronic Gaming store nearby which the men will enjoy. Several brand name stores for the ladies and large retail stores such as H&M, C&A, Primark, that are ideal for the whole family. There are many restaurants and places to get a quick bite to eat. In general very trendy and elegant.

To be honest, this mall is just like any other. Restaurants, grocery stores and other retailers such as HM, Zara and media markt. One downside is all the renovations within the mall itself.

Dear Tintin, thank you for your review. Sorry to hear that you feel like Hoog Catharijne is like every other mall. The renovation is not very attractive, but there is a nice part with shops in return. We hope to see you soon. Greeting, Team Hoog Catharijne
