As the name suggests this coffeeshop is actually a boat - and quite a large boat at that. It's light in colour, has wooden tables and chairs, Moroccan lamps on its walls and many plants around the windows. In short, it's a perfect environment for smoking and reading an In Your Pocket guide (although other literature is also permitted). With its friendly staff and pleasant surroundings on the canal, Culture Boat is one of the best in Utrecht, despite being on the outskirts of the city centre. Just make sure you buy and smoke their weed or hash in their coffeeshop, an important negative point.
