The Dom Tower (Dutch: Domtoren) of Utrecht is the tallest church tower in The Netherlands,[1] at 112.32 metres (368,5 feet) in height.[2]

The Dom Tower of Utrecht, as seen in the third edition of r/Place, was part of an architecture collage. The other artworks in the collage were: the Royal Palace of Amsterdam, Cube Houses, and the Mauritshuis. The artwork was completed around 13:30 GMT on July 24th on the Flag of The Netherlands, but without the cross on its roof which was added 2 hours later. The pixel art remained until the Great Whiteout.


The church tower is considered the symbol of Utrecht. The tower was part of St. Martin's Cathedral and was built between 1321 and 1382, to a Gothic design by John of Hainaut. The cathedral was never fully completed due to lack of money. Since the unfinished nave collapsed in 1674, the Dom tower has been a freestanding tower. The tower stands at the spot where the city of Utrecht originated almost 2000 years ago.
