Overview

The Dom Tower of Utrecht is the tallest and oldest church tower in the Netherlands, at 112 meters in height. It’s a place you must visit when in Utrecht and is considered the symbol of Utrecht. The tower was built between 1321 and 1382 as part of St. Martin’s Cathedral. The cathedral was never fully completed due to a lack of money. The unfinished structure collapsed in 1674, and the Dom Tower has been standing alone ever since. The tower is visible from almost any point in Utrecht. But, even if you can’s see it, you’ll probably hear one of its 13 bells. You can climb the 465 steps to the top of the tower. Once there, you’ll find the view of the entire city of Utrecht and the surrounding area. Note that you can only visit with the companion of a guide or as part of a guided tour. The one-hour tour will take you on a historical journey visiting the rooms and galleries of the tower. Visiting times change daily, so make sure to check the Ticketshop for an activity overview and timetable.
