Last updated by

If you’re heading down to Utrecht this summer for the Tour de France start, you might be interested in checking into the Utrecht Eye-Hotel.

Created in a monumental building located at the Wijde Bagijnestraat, the structure comes with its own unique history having been built in 1650.

Constructed to serve as a mansion, it became the first clinic of its kind accepting patients with all kinds of eye related problems.

Operated by Hans Pieters and Paul Westra, the hotel will offer 36 rooms and is expected to open to the public from the first of May.
