Description: The Dom Tower of Utrecht is the tallest church tower in the Netherlands, at 112 metres in height.

The tower was part of the medieval cathedral of Utrecht and was built between 1321 and 1382. The building was hastily completed due to lack of money and so lacked the flying buttresses to support its walls. In 1674 a hurricane destroyed a large part of the middle section of Dom Church, but the tower was spared. The remaining section of the church and tower were never reconnected, and a street and square now separate the two structures. In the summer of 2004, however, a mock nave was constructed out of scaffolding to commemmerate the missing link.
