During the course of the last 700 years, the Dom Tower has stood witness to much of Utrecht’s tumultuous past. Join us as we explore the most important moments in our history and discover more about this iconic symbol of Utrecht.
The origins of Utrecht lie at the foot of the tower: Dom Square. The square began as a fortress and then became a religious centre before becoming a meeting place. Let us uncover Dom Square’s beautiful stories, its unique architecture and the rich history that lies, in part, below the surface.
The Dom Tower is currently completely covered in scaffolding. The tower requires a complete restoration every 50 years. Due to its position and height, the tower is exposed to more than its fair share of wind, rain, frost and sun. Would you believe the first restoration began more than 500 years ago?
The Dom Tower contains 64 bells. Fourteen swinging bells hang at 49 metres, with the carillon standing at 70 metres. Together, they form the voice of the Dom Tower and can be heard in every street within the city centre.
The Dom Tower is open all year round. In addition to our guided tour in the summer, we regularly organize other activities and special tours in the tower. Check our agenda for more.
