Visit to the Dom Tower not for the faint hearted

It is a long way up and the views are spectacular if you can stand heights. Very informative talk from the guide both in Dutch and English. Well worth the trip.

There are 465 steps (about 95 meter) to the top. If you can handle a good climb, don't miss this one. On a nice day the views are spectacular at the top, and the bells of the tower are magnificent. (How did they get them up there?) Then step into the main sanctuary of the church next door where you... More

Great visit, great view of all city. You can see the canal of city, the beautiful church and to know the history of the great church Cathedral of Saint Martin and Dom Tower. You can get the tickets by Internet, pay attention with the time and open days.

We visited the Dom Tower on a beautiful sunny day. There are a lot of steps but you do stop along the way and the guide will give an informative talk in both Dutch And English. The last few steps are a little more narrow but is well worthwhile for the view. The tour lasted for an hour. The staff... More

Meeting in the tourist office on Dom Square one of the tower guides takes you across to start your long climb up! There are various stopping points along the way with interesting talks (in Dutch and English) about the history of the tower and its relationship to Utrecht and the Netherlands. The steps are fairly easy going up until the... More

Well informed guides, (you can only visit escorted) 456 steps to the top, with a couple of interesting stops on the way. Guides understand that some of us are a bit slower, and make allowances so don't be put off if you are a bit slow! Word of warning, no food or drink (even bottled water) can be taken in.

The grounds and church are amazing to wander through for no charge, there is a charge for the Dom Tower and of course it is guided. Our guide was very engaging and informative about the Tower and it's history. The views were stunning even on a foggy day as this is the highest point in Utrecht it is worth the... More

The Dom is really interesting to introduce the children to that sort of architecture. It fascinated them that the cathedral was half destroyed by a storm. We could show them on old engraving how the cathedral looked before. Also you see on the plein the pavements marking where the columns used to be. We did not climbed the tower, but... More
