Social Impact Factory, Vredenburg 40, Utrecht city center



Utrecht, the fourth city of The Netherlands, is home to its second largest university. The origin of the city goes back to Roman times. The medieval city center is famous for its “werfkelders”: the boardwalks with cellars by the city’s canals. In 1713 the treaty of Utrecht was negotiated and signed here: the first major multi-national peace treaty that ended the Spanish war of succession. The city hosts various film, dance, music, literature and poetry festivals, and it is one of the UNESCO Cities of Literature (in particular we accomodate a lot of poets).

Direct trains leave every 15 minutes from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport to the center of Utrecht; the trip takes just under half an hour.
