Great view of the market square and city from the top of the spire

A bit of a climb...but worth it. Token Coins to access available from tourist office in the square..

The Martinitoren is one of the most well-known sight seeing attractions in Groningen. For just a couple of euros you can access the Martinitoren and go all the way up the tower. You will have a great view of Groningen. The steps are really steep, so you can expect a little work out while you are walking.

The tower can be accessed by getting a token from the nearby tourist office (it is 3 euros). From there you can climb right up to the top of the tower and see some truly stunning views of the city and the surrounding area. It also gives a brief history of the tower, including it's role through the ages. A... More

It catches your eye and it might be the first thing that you will notice at the center of the Groningen.

I went there on a nice afterrnoon, the sun was shining and it was not too cold. So because of the nice weather is was nice in the towers of the church. You could see the Groningen in a lovely panoramic view. A must do when you visit Groningen but do not expect too much of it

Good sign to find the city center! You will see the whole town from the top but watch your head while you are going up!

The local people call this tower, oal' grieze, which means old grey one. I don't remember the entrance fee but it was about 3-5 euro's. After ascending the tower you can go outside and look around, you can see the whole city form the tower since officially it's not allowed to build any building higher than this tower.

It's a lot of stairs but it's worth it, in the top there is a nice view, I recommend it if you got a little bit of time and 3 euro, the tower is in the city center so easy to get there!

It's so nice to see the entire city... But it's so hard going up over 200 stairs, in a very confined space, only one pearson coud be on the stairs at a time. But there are stops at different levels, so you cand find out something new and rest a bit. But the view from up there is worth it.... More

When you visit Groningen, this tower is one on the list 'what to do" in this city. This tiime I didn't climb it as my knies didn't allow me to do it. When you're here, walk behind this church and you'll find a green square where you can take a rest after strolling around in the city centre.
