There is a remarkable building in the very heart of Utrecht. The bustle of the city centre suddenly seems very far away. The Dom Cathedral, with its towering arches and vaults, is one of the medieval churches that resemble the cathedrals that you may have seen in France or Germany. History has left its mark on both the architecture and the interior. The most drastic events were the sixteenth-century Iconoclasm and the devastating tornado of 1674, which caused the nave to collapse. That created the present-day Domplein (Cathedral Square), an open space between the church and its tower.
On the 5th of June, the church will be open again for visitors.
We have selected the church’s highlights for you. There is a remarkable story behind each one. Ask for the audiotour when you visit, and listen to the stories as you wander through the church. Or take the guided tour, which will lead you to all the highlights.
There are several parking garages within walking distance of the Domkerk, such as Parkeergarage Springweg.
The Domkerk is a 15-minute walk from Utrecht Central Station. You can also catch a number 7 or 8 bus and get off at the Janskerkhof stop, which is a few minutes’ walk away. Plan your trip at 9292.nl.
