When you visit Utrecht you will notice the Domtoren almost immediately. The 14th century tower is the heart of the old city centre and for most visitors their visit to Utrecht starts here.
The Domtoren is in need of restoration work and maintenance on the exterior so in 2017 the first part of the scaffolding was raised around the top part of the tower and more work will be done in the upcoming years.
The Domtoren is open for visitors as normal. No work will be done on the inside of the tower so you can visit the chapels and belfry. When you come outside on the galleries at 70 meters and 95 meters you will see some scaffolding but the view is unchanged and as impressive as always. And you get the unique opportunity to see the work up close!
