  • Tickets can be bought at the tourist office. We went early one morning when it wasn't busy. I can imagine it gets difficult to pass on the tight spiral stairs when there are lots of visitors!! The vie...  more »
  • Had to be long climbing stairs, but then you have what. Beautiful view, you can also watch from a balcony or outside all the way up behind the clock.

  • Groningens Martine tower is probably the most famous Dutch tower, after Utrechts Dom tower. In that light the entrance fee of a few euros is quite cheap. The coins can be obtained at the tourist info ...  more »

  • We went here on Open Monument Day and it was crowded, but didn't take too long to get in. The biggest confusion with everyone seemed to be that the coins needed for entrance had to be bought at the Tourist Information Center across the street on the Grote Markt (don't know if this applies to every other day, too). The tower has a limit on people entering, so if one person leaves, another one can go in. Since the stairs are very narrow and the rooms on different levels of the tower very small, this is a good thing. There are certain times (look at the sign at the entrance) when the bells are being operated and they even let you pull the ropes yourself! We were lucky with the very top platform being open to visit, apparently this is not always the case or at least not at all hours of the day. From there you get a great view of Groningen from above. Definitely worth climbing all those steps for!
  • If you're willing to pay, you'll get a cool view over the city. It's the highest building in Groningen
  • Great view to the city, and its a must if you are interested in huge bells :) You can even try a "bell-piano"!
  • Must see if you visit the city of Groningen. Real narrow stairway to the top but the view is a big reward.
  • Great view over Groningen. They also let you ring the massive bell which is great fun.
