Hotels and Bed&Breakfast

Close to Houten are many Hotels from modest to very luxery. In Houten and Utrecht you will find B&B (bed and breakfast) from 35 euro to 60 euro per night for one to two persons for a room with t.v. and internet. Here are 8 links to B&B in Houten, in Culemborg and in the centre of Utrecht near the train station, so you can travel very fast (7-8 minutes with the train) and cheap to my house:

I advise my students to stay in Houten, because of the distance.

Klaverstijn - Culemborg -

Transport to my house is short and easy. Bus and train stops every 15 minutes near my house.



The classes will be organized at my home in Houten. If the weather is fine, we will work outside in my small and cosy garden, on the veranda, on 2 large garden tables.

When the weather is cool or in case of some rain we will work inside on a large table.

Houten is a most beautiful Dutch modern small town in the middle of The Netherlands, adjoining the beautiful town Utrecht.

Houten is surrounded by scenic nature.

Houten has a fully renovated new center with many great shops, a brand new theater and cinema, little beautiful cafes and terraces.

Many trees, little bridges and streaming waters.

It is wonderful to stroll and go for a walk especially in summertime.


Houten is well known for her limited traffic. The beautiful center is only 2 minute walking distance of my home! 


The train station is only 4 minutes walking distance of my home. Every 15 minutes a train arrives and leaves to Utrecht and the South of the country.  The train Utrecht - Houten takes only 8 minutes. In the center is a new bus station where every 15 minutes a bus leave to Utrecht and other surrounding towns.


Close to Houten you can visit several beautiful castles, such as 

Kasteel De Haar

 Kasteel Heemstede

Kasteel Sijpestijn

Utrecht is a beautiful lively town to visit  with the beautiful Dom Church and garden

Utrecht is famous for its fantastic canals where you can experience a romantic canal ride.
