Dom Tower is the tallest church tower in the Netherlands at 112.5 meters in height. It was part of St. Martin’s Cathedral, and is considered the symbol of Utrecht. Dom Tower was completed around 1321 while the cathedral was still under construction. Due to a lack of funds, the church was never completed. The unfinished nave then collapsed around 300 years ago during a tornado, converting Dom Tower into a freestanding tower. The architectural style is Gothic. If you climb to the top on a clear day, you can see Amsterdam and Rotterdam in the distance.
