The beautiful architecture and old world stylings make this a must see in the old part of Utrecht. It was well worth the day trip. Utrecht has very different feel from other Dutch cities. The Tower was great to explore with lots of history and character

It's a beautiful tower and a nice church - the garden of the church is free of charge. You can climb the tower and have a nice view over the city.

A great place to visit. Interesting view of Utrecht's history. They have found some parts of an old stone wall and other parts of previous buildings.

It's a steep climb, but once at the top you'll be rewarded with an excellent view of the city. Also the stories behind the building of the tower are fascinating.

The guided tour of the Dom tower gives you a good sense of the history of the Dom church and it's detached tower. The challenging trip of 465 steps up to the roof of the tower is interrupted by two brief stops where the well informed guide tells you about the history of that particular section of the tower.

You can see the Dom Tower all over Utrecht as an impressive sight. Worth the visit to see the tower. Either taking the tour to the top with amazing views or just seeing it from the ground. Must see.

The highest point in the Netherlands. An activity for those who can climb 465 steps but in the end a beautiful view. the guides have enough knowledge about the events
