Karel 5 Events: inspired solutions for every event

A meeting in the “Graanzolder”, a contract signing in the tower vault, a wedding dinner in the iconic Medieval refectory, a tasting with colleagues in our wine cellar, or a presentation in the Monastery’s former dormitory of the brothers of the Order. With 13 venues surrounded by magnificent gardens and terraces, Karel 5 is an ideal location for any private or business function.

Separated, yet integrated with life in the city. Within the walls of Karel 5, in the throbbing heart of Utrecht, an own, dynamic pulse is felt. With an illustrious past, history is written here, every day.

Fun & informal in the “Graanzolder”; private and intriguing in the tower vault …and more
Our “Graanzolder” is very cosy. Beer drinking, in the Middle-Ages, was a serious matter, even more so because beer was considered a safer drink than water. Advice we take to heart, here at Karel 5. The “Graanzolder” is a cosy space for your reception and aperitifs, and ideal for a coffee break during your meeting in one of the adjoining rooms.

As special is the “Gulden Vlies” Room in the tower vault, dating 1450. The room served formerly as a safety vault, archives, and dungeon. Fun detail: the hatch with “mail slot” at the bottom of the tower allowed the bats to fly in and out. With its view of the Officers garden and special ambience the room is well suited to formal functions, such as the signing of an important contract. And, we also have the Refectory for hire, the medieval dining hall with its imposing high ceilings and polished floor boards. The refectory is also where our Restaurant Karel 5 is located- the place where we make culinary dreams happen.
