The build of the tower took 60 years, and was made under three architects.
It was built in Dutch Gothic style, as opposed to the church which was built in French gothic style.
It was the tallest church tower in Europe at the time of building: the only taller towers owned their length to their high steeples. No earlier tower was built in the Dom manner: in three parts, the bottom one a massive castle-like square, above that a smaller, more elegant square, and above that the elegant octagon. This style was used in later Dutch towers.

(Wow. I just learnt that the Dom square (the area between church and tower, where the church centre used to be before the tornado) was actually a meeting place for homosexuals in the 17th and 18th century, until in 1730 several cruisers got arrested, convicted and strangled.)

Another story is the origin of the Dutch saying "being ladderdrunk"
In the middle of the 15th century the Utrecht towerwatcher ,who lived with his family in the tower, made some extra money having a little bar in his house (aprox. 11 meters high). To reach this bar you had to go through the housing of the pastor who was not very amused when people walk trough his house. When he omitted the use of his house, the only option to reach the bar inside of the tower was with the help of a ladder. As you understand going up was normally not such of a problem, buth going down with a lot of alcohol in your blood is quite a different story. Since then, people who are very drunk are called "ladderzat" (ladderdrunk). Amazing is that it is still used nowadays and not only in Utrecht but troughout the country. BTW when visiting the tower you still go trough the housing of the towerwatcher. (without climbing a ladder)

Unless you speak English like me with a horrible accent. But you're completely right. I made a mistake with the second a. Still trying to find a word that sounds like it, but i cannot find it at the moment.

BBp is still a sleep after the concert in Hengelo, the long train yourney and the fact that she was informed that there were no trains between Den Bosch and Eindhoven. Thats why I drove to Den Bosch in the middle of the night. Finding traine to eindhoven that was waiting for the train from Utrecht with BBP. It was lonely and cold or cold and lonely. But if she awakes she maybe can make a daytime picture of the enormous projectors.

That will be tommorow :)

Oh, thank you very much! The detail of the frame is shown here very well.
To me, of course, it points out the "3-arch" ogee in the middle. The 'center ' that the rest supports.
In 1800's British art prude John Ruskin talks a lot about that form of a window or arch as most noble form or example of Medieval architecture. He said it creates depth, shadows that best shows mystery of Christian God in that world. He was a nut. But has a wide influence on people like Marcel Proust, Mahatma Ghandhi. and art history for a hundred years.

This example in light and a white framework speaks to all that but from a very different point of view. Very Interesting
