  • The narrow stairs up is particularly but the climb is rewarded. The views are fabulous because you see the meadows over the city again. At the highest level was the carillonneur busy, nice to see. The din of the clocks is bigger than I had imagined. The old cemetery behind the Church with aale historic houses is also well worth a visit.

  • A stunning tower attached to a beautiful church. Yes there is a lot of stairs as you would expect but the view of Groningen is worth it. 
  • Right on the central square of Groningen. If possible attend an organ concert in this church. The Martini cemetery is just behind the church

  • 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.
