    There's a small stall at the bottom floor that makes Dutch sweets (waffles, pofertjes and etc..) that are the best I had in the Netherlands, follow the sign of the WC or "2theLoo" to get there.

    Its becoming more welcoming with the nice new shops and food places. Soon you can only enter with a ticket so have it with you!

    My way of surviving this train station and adjacent mall is to drop in on track 14/15 from AMS and then go straight for the bike rental to get a OV-fiets and by-pass the Hoog Cathereijne clusterfuck.

    If you need anything , ask the Information Desk. They were super nice and helped me find my track + multiple Starbucks! Utrecht is a cute town to explore too!

    The best Hot Chocolate is the "Signature Hot chocolate" at Starbucks. Still want a nice but cheaper one go to the Broodzaak. Worst hot chocolate is at the Kiosk.

    Utrecht Centraal is the heart of the Netherlands if you travel by public transport. From here you can get through the whole country within a relatively short time. :)

    Although being renovated, it's one big maze. I never know how to walk to the right exit or track. The main hall is also too busy.

    Walk through the tunnels instead of the main hall, much much less busy. And one was actually a (possible) war shelter during the cold war, giving room to 2000 people for a few days.

    Lunchtime? Grab a sandwich at De Broodzaak, freshly made on the day and relatively cheap!

    Huge railway station with tons of shops nearby. Frequent disruptions to train service and the past years reconstruction in the station has been taking place.

    Busiest station in the country! Recent renovations aren't quite as inspiring as those in Rotterdam or Amsterdam, though.

    Julia has better espresso than starbucks but if you care more milk, cappuccino and Latte's go there. Stick to Julia's if you like the coffee black and strong

    Wanna look like a real American hipster? Grab a tripple machiatto latte choco at Starbucks. If you're looking for good coffee, grab a € 1 one at the AH Togo.

    You can check in at 8:55 AM and still have the 40% discount. Useful, for example, for the 8:58 AM intercity to schiphol airport.

    Look at the big digital screen in the centre of the station. It's the timeschedule for the next trains.
