“ The tower stands at the spot where the city of Utrecht originated almost 2,000 years ago. It is the tallest church tower in the Netherlands,[1] at 112.5 metres (368 feet) in height,[2] and the Gothic-style tower is the symbol of the city.[1] The tower was part of the Cathedral of Saint Martin, Utrecht, also known as Dom Church, and was built between 1321 and 1382,[1] to a design by John of Hainaut.[3] The cathedral was never fully completed due to lack of money. Since the unfinished nave collapsed in 1674 the Dom tower became a free standing tower. ”
