German community in Utrecht
Germany is the most important trade partner of the Netherlands. It is therefore not surprising that Utrecht has a large German community. Some 3,000 Germans live and work in the Dom City. There are also 76 companies of German origin. Utrecht cherishes its German residents and companies. Utrecht University teaches the German language and culture. The city sponsors the German Sunday School where German children can keep up their language and culture. Also for the parents the German Sunday School acts as a bonding factor.
