City Hall

As a result of the Corona virus (Covid-19) Aorta can no longer organize tours until june 1st 2020. This date is extended as needed. We will base our decision on the advice of the Dutch gouvernment.
Check our website regularly for the latest update.


The new City Hall of Utrecht (2015) is located in the middle of the busiest public transport hub in the Netherlands. The new building, designed by Kraaijvanger Architects, has a big impact on the skyline of Utrecht, adding a distinctive white façade, with clearly visible bracings.

Public functions are housed in the lower floors of the North Tower. Above that, floors six to eleven link the North and the South Towers. The South Tower, carried by only a few supports, extends over the station square and the station hall.

The size of the municipal offices required an ‘urban ecology’, with each floor being specially designed to make optimum use of daylight and transparency. The interior is based on a modern office concept, with flexible, shared workplaces.

During the tour we only visit the public floors (1 – 6).
