Women's Tour Utrecht (VLTH202)

During this tour you will walk past the large buildings for which the city is known such as Tivoli Vredenburg, the former post office and De Dom. We walk along the buildings and the canals with a memorial stone between the bricks or a less known stage. There you will come across the stories about the women who gave Utrecht a different face.

The tour

    "If I get married, I can write on my stomach," thought Anna Maria.
    Getting married is a pointless convention, just like taking exams in all subjects, said Johanna.
    And Maria was sure that she would never take ownership of her father's business if she got married and that the capital would not stay in the family.

And that's why they ... didn't get married!

These three women stuck to their point of view and were not persuaded to live up to the ideal picture. That actually applies to all ten women who played an indelible role in Utrecht. They lived and worked in the cathedral city of the 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th or 20th centuries. They wrote prose that is still being read, tackled immense walls, continued (contrary to everything) with their work or study or stayed forever young.

Is Utrecht your city and do you like to go shopping with your mother or do you only travel through it by train? Do you want (another) reason to stop? Then sign up with a group of at least 5, maximum 20 people. You will learn all about the women in Utrecht from long ago and now!
