ParkingIt is extremely difficult to park in the centre of Utrecht. We therefore advise you to use public transport. If you come by car regardless, then the Springweg Car Park is nearby. If you would rather park free of charge, then check the website www.parkerenindestad.nl.
FunfactsIn the main building of the Utrecht Conservatory you will find De Kapel. This is the neo-gothic chapel of the former men's hospital St. Joannes de Deo. The chapel has impressive stained glass windows by Heinrich Geuer and an original tiled floor.
HKU Utrechts Conservatorium uses De Kapel for acoustic concerts and lectures.
