Dom Tower, Utrecht

4.5
Overlooking charming streets on one side and channels on the other, Dom Tower stands 112.5 m (369 ft) tall, offering unparalleled views of the city. This Gothic structure, which dates back to 1382, is the tallest church tower in the country. Once a part of the largest church in the Netherlands, today it stands alone and challenges you to climb its 465 steps to the top. On the way you'll see 14 giant bells, and the tower's two galleries will reward you with views of Utrecht, Amsterdam, and Rotterdam on clear days. If you wish to have a guided tour, visit the office just below the tower to get information.

  • Really enjoyed the visit. The guided tour (only option) is really informative and was delivered in Dutch and English. The history was great to hear, but even more ro see. The bells are very impressive...  more »
  • very interesting story of the tower and the bells in it when you're climbing it, but it's 465 narrow stone steps up and it's difficult to reach the top  more »

  • Great variety of craft papers at your fingertips. A completely unforgettable and surprising place. We discover it by chance, walking aimlessly and we were surprised by the quantity and variety of materials for sale. Wonderful!
  • Great sight to see. The tour guide VERY fluent in English and Dutch. Good views from the top of the tower and cool to see the insides and be allowed to climb it - this kind of thing would never exist in the US without a liability waiver.
