Yesterday I did a post on the Dom tower. Vogon asked if I had pictures from the tower and actually I have a set of photos. You can visit the tower daily.
I receive almost everyday a comment of Vogon, many people are a part of my blogging life now, but we never have met or spoken in real life, yet we keep an eye on each others blogs...from all over the world...:)
So Vogon, this one is on your request...Cheers from Marcel
When you are on the top and look down, this is part of what you see. Utrecht has a lot of canals with cute little houses...
Looking a bit more straight you see the street plan of the city, all centred around the canals.
The tower used to be a part of the church, but a hurricane destroyed the middle part, it has never been restored.
The cloister garden has been preserved. It is a great place to escape the city for a moment.
Huge stone fence... generations and generations of people have stood there, the views must have been different though.
Inside is a 'Carillion', it noticed it plays some times the tunes of 'The Sound of Music'.....
A bit more to the right you can see the city hall, the big building on the right.
Bat house - I have posted pictures of this bat house before. I'm not sure the bats use it, because in all of the years it has been there, I have never seen any bats ...
