The spot right behind the Domtoren (Dom Tower) is where you find the Domkerk (Dom Church). Built in the days of the Romans and it’s the history of politics and religion which has eventually led to the building you find there today.
Did you know for example that the original Domtoren was connected to the Domkerk? The missing ship of the church that connected the two crashed during a tornado that ravaged through Utrecht in the 17th century.
Next to the daily afternoon prayer you can also visit the Domkerk for the interior that offers many sights worth seeing. Wall paintings from the 15th century, an ornamental grave from the 17th century and the stained glass in the windows make it into a unique experience.
