Pandhof van de Domkerk

 Domplein Utrecht Netherlands     more than a year ago

Partly hidden behind the most attractive building in town, the Dom Cathedral, you'll find the most beautiful courtyard square in Utrecht. The Dom's Pandhof, or inner courtyard, is the ultimate oasis of peace in the city centre. Originally this was a medieval monastery garden dating from the 15th century, but today it's a pleasant green zone boasting more than 140 different plants and herbs. The covered cloisters which connect the church to the Chapter House are also impressive and the neo-Gothic entrance gate added in 1857 is an architectural gem, which includes a relief of the university coat of arms. A fountain with a bronze statue of a 14th-century Dom cannon is located in the middle of the garden. If you'd like to take your time and enjoy the Pandhof with a snack or a drink, you can find a seat in the Dom Cathedral's tearoom.

Netherlands,
UnbelievableĀ . I have been each time to the Dom when i visited Utrecht (and that's at least 10 times) but i never knew that so close was a place of almost the same beauty. Astonishing in all weathers. Even with heavy rains or thunderstorms this place comes even more alive...
