Domtoren, Utrecht
(4.6/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Overlooking charming streets on one side and channels on the other, Domtoren 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.

  • The Cathedral is a beautiful church which in the iconoclastic unfortunately stripped of many sculptures. What is left is restored over the centuries. On the square between the Church and the tower is by means of different colors pavement indicated where the nave. That has been devastated by a storm in centuries past.

  • The most important historic site in Utrecht, a must see if you're here. I recommend going up the tower. It's quite the climb, but the history inside and the view up top are more than worth it!
  • A unique tower with several kinds of bell sets. The tower is 112 meters high and with the guided tour there you can get up to 95 meters On each level there are different bell sets. And when you get to the highest point you can see a marvelous view of the city Ticket for adult = 9€ for kid = 6€
  • Climb the 464 steps to the 95th meter for not just a proper workout, but a stunning view! The tour guide will offer plenty of history along the way. Tickets are sold at the VVV office in the corner of the square, next to the terraces. Tor departs from that location. There are free lockers, so you don't need to carry luggage to the top of the tower.
  • No other building in Utrecht is allowed to match its height of more than 112 metres (368 ft). A complete tour of the Dom Tower can involve climbing 465 steps to the second trans at 95 metres (312 ft) which requires some stamina. The tower was built between 1321 and 1382.
  • God it is too high. Also guide has a really good english
