  • Chances are these words you hear when you want to obtain information about the Martini Tower during a visit to Groningen. For the inhabitants of the city, the tower that is the nickname "d" Olle Grieze '. The Tower has the nickname due to the current color of the weathered Bentheimer sandstone. The tower is the symbol of the city and is 97 metres high and with its 311 steps to climb almost daily. Discover Groningen and enjoy the view.

  • Like real stadjer I continue to enjoy the view of the Martini Tower. The highest point of the city is definitely worth

  • 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.
