Metro figureEdit

Although the Netherlands does not really keep track of 'metro areas', I think the figure listed here is the urban population of Utrecht. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:38, 2 September 2012 (UTC)


I'm sorry, but Utrecht is NOT a Dutch euphemism for a homosexual. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:35, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

Nobody says so. It is about the term Utrechtenaar that at one time had to connotation. Arnoutf (talk) 15:01, 25 June 2011 (UTC)

Good climate data for Utrecht?Edit

I just changed the climate data table to use the data of the Hong Kong Observatory instead of Meteo Consult. The data of Meteo Consult was better because it is more recent, but the reference given for the data led to the front page of the Dutch website of Meteo Consult. I'm Dutch myself, but I couldn't find the data used for the climate table anywhere on their website. If a direct link to their climate data is in fact available, can the person who knows this link undo my edit and give a proper reference to the climate data of Meteo Consult? I also checked if the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute has data here, but they don't.

The older data of HKO gives colder temperatures (global warming I guess) and lot less sunshine, Utrecht isn't a sunny place but I can hardly imagine it's as gloomy as HKO's data suggests. I calculated the monthly sunshine hours by multiplying the daily sunshine hours given by HKO with 28,25 as is recommended by Template:Weather_box, maybe that's where it went wrong? — Preceding unsigned comment added by AlexanderVanLoon (talkcontribs) 20:07, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

I consider this to be fixed know. I added the data provided by the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute for the weather station at De Bilt, which lies very close to Utrecht.--AlexanderVanLoon (talk) 08:12, 26 June 2012 (UTC)


"Lewys is the Prince and Bishop. He is great. We love him."

This is written at the end of the Prince-Bishops section. It is invisible on the edit page, and I can't see how to remove it. Heavenlyblue (talk) 22:46, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

There's more. (At least at the end of the lead, and at the end of section City of Utrecht.) It's in the article page, but not in the edit page. Please help. An IP that's blocked now added it, and ClueBot appeared to have tried to revert it. But it's still there, in the article space. Mark in wiki (talk) 06:32, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
I do not see any in the article now. Have all of them been removed successfully? CRwikiCA talk 14:50, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
Yes, thank you. It has been solved now, thanks to help from the village pump. Mark in wiki (talk) 16:13, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

Timeline of UtrechtEdit

What is missing from the recently created city timeline article? Please add relevant content! Contributions welcome. Thank you. -- M2545 (talk) 09:13, 7 October 2015 (UTC)

Recent eventsEdit

I have removed the one-sentence subsection about the recent shooting in Utrecht because I feel it is out of place in a three-paragraph description of Utrecht's modern history, which spans more than two centuries. Surely the considerations that have lead to its inclusion would merit the inclusion of many other recent events that have happened in the city, which in my opinion would be equally out of place in this article. I am perfectly happy with the existence of an article about the shooting in Wikipedia, I just feel including it in the article about the city would give this undue weight. Mark in wiki (talk) 13:16, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

Agree with removal. Sad and shocking as the shooting maybe, it is only a very minor incident in the almost 2000 years the city exists. Arnoutf (talk) 16:14, 29 March 2019 (UTC)

Conversion of part of moat into motorway and back into waterwayEdit

I have put a short mention of this in the Cityscape section. There is a lot more info about this in these links:

... but I think these sources may not be considered reliable in WP, even though these seem to me to be well produced and informative. Any opinions on this?

Updated Climate Data: 1991-2020Edit

Official climate averages for the period 1991-2020 are now available at KNMI - Klimaattabellen Per Station. Under "Klimaattabel, per station" ---> "De Bilt". Should the climate table be updated? Duprie37 (talk) 08:51, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

Return to "Utrecht" page.
