Honthorst, Granida and Daifilo, 1625, Centraal Museum Utrecht.A walk along those spots in the city that belong to Utrecht's Golden Age. During this period, roughly covering the 17th century, Utrecht was of special importance for the international success of Dutch painting. But much happened in other cultural and social fields, as well. Of some of these developments, traces can still be found in the city. We follow these traces through the historic centre of Utrecht where you will discover well and less known places, seen from the perspective of this booming period in Utrecht's cultural history, which also was of major importance for European art history in the 17th century.

See the former house of a famous painter, a hidden piece of architectural history or learn about a special episode of this era, helping you to travel back in time into lively Utrecht some centuries ago. Famous as well as lesser known names will pass by, like Abraham Bloemaert, Gerard van Honthorst, Joachim von Sandrart, Paulus Moreelse and Roelant Saverij.
