Create an itinerary including Dom Tower
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.

  • The Tower is a tourist attraction in the city of Utrecht. Unfortunately when I was there they were restoring it, so it was not possible to see it well or enter it.

  • Despite the tower being clad in scaffolding it’s still worth a tour to climb to the top. 495 steps (which get narrower as you ascend) you need to have strong legs! The tour guide was excellent...

  • It takes an hour to walk top to bottom. The walk up is broken up into stages of 3 or four stops. The guides are very informative and open to questions. It was in Dutch and English on our trip up. The tower is covered in scaffolding due to restoration work that in due to finish sometime in 2024. Still worth it. 12.50€ per person.
  • Utrecht trip is not complete without visiting the tallest church tower in the Netherlands. Even though the work in continuing, it is possible to go to the top of the tower. The panoramic view of Utrecht from there is marvelous. Be ready to walk 450+ steps!! The tourist information service and the guides are doing an excellent job, they explain the history and the details so well. Hats off to them !!
