Dom Tower, Utrecht

(1,300+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Historic Site
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.

  • Informative guided visit, interesting history and those big bells have been up and down a couple of times. And you can hardly hear them when you're in the staircase!! So enjoyable to hear such a selec...  more »
  • The tower is impressive from the outside but make the effort to climb the stairs to the top. The views will not disappoint.  more »
  • We came over to take a look at the surrounding but didn't climb up. Definitely another touristy place, very nice vibes around the vicinity. Can be pretty crowded too. No doubt another nice place to vi...  more »

  • The tower is a big excersise but it's definitely worth it. There are four levels to take a break and admire the steps of constructions. Tour guider gave short but good story as introduction. The view is an award of long climbing!
  • Stunning landmark, the area arround has just been refurbished and looks very clean and open, there is a stunning canal by the Dom with a number of excellent restaurants and bars. They have recently opened an underground tour of the Dom partly in English and partly in Dutch. You can also go up the Dom at a charge.
  • Nice experience, they break it up nicely so it's not too crowded or a sprint to the top. On busier days (weekends and summer) it helps to make an appointment online. Note: the climb ticket is a group tour leaving once every half an hour. They do sell out!
  • The tallest church in the Netherlands. The bells dating back 3 centuries are still preserved and maintained. A proper guided tour is available.
  • Beautiful tower with an amazing view. The tower climb tour allows you to go all the way to the roof and gives you the opportunity to hit the medieval church bells with a rubber hammer. It is best to take this tour in a small group as it allows the tour guide to explain even more about the tower.
