“Beautiful Church and a free work out by climbing the stairs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

The area around the church is charming and full of history. The church insite is worth to see and on Sunday there's a beautiful choir during the service.

“You can see Amsterdam on a clear day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

It is a lot of work to climb the 400 steps to the top. But you can rest on the lower parts of the tower. When you are op top you have an excellent view of Utrecht. Buildings, roof gardens, trees etc.
Take your tele-lens with you.
On a clear day you can see the cities around Utrecht, even Amsterdam!

“An hour well spent; great guides!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

I have visited the Domtower many times, since I live in Utrecht itself, but every time is different. This is largely thanks to the great guides taking you up this beautiful medieval tower. They all have more knowledge than they can spread around in just one hour, meaning each tour has a (slightly) different content. Combine this with the never dissapointing views of both the interior of the tower itself and it's beautifull surroundings, and you're left with an hour well spent.

“Beautiful sight!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

The Dom tower is the tallest church tower in the Netherlands. You will be able to climb it only with a tour guide, who will stop due or three times during the trip upstairs to tell you interesting facts about the building of the tower and its gigantic bells. Eventually you will reach the very top and you will enjoy a beautiful view of the city. I reccomend buying the combo ticket Dom Tower + Speelklok Museum at the nearby Tourist Information center.
