  • The whole tower is a museum, you can go to the top and have a superb view over the city. Admission is 8 euros per person and definitely worth it.

  • For sure worth the visit. 20 floors full of rich information about the horrible Great War. A wonderful view once you reach the top. Outside around the building also a must see.
