A remnant of Utrecht's original 14th-century cathedral , this tower is 112m high, with 50 bells. It's worth the 465-step climb to the top for unbeatable city views; on a clear day you can see Amsterdam. Visit is by guided tour only, departing on the hour. Tickets can be purchased online or at the Tourist Office across the square.

The cathedral and its tower are the city's most striking medieval landmarks. Following almost 300 years' construction, in 1674 hurricane-force winds blew down the nave, leaving only the tower, transept and chancel that we see today.
