The proud of Groningen, 'de olle Grieze". The martinetoren😊 Make sure your in good condition because it have 373 steps to clim on before you get on the top of the tower. The tower build in 1230 and have a Nice history. If you want you can have a grand Tour by on of the guide.

It's not whether or not it's got a narrow staircase going up it, or whether or not the steps lead all the way to the very top; there's always one cloud too many in the endless skies and all Germans keep coming from the East. It's the (church)tower itself that matters in all it's grey proud essence. The forever homing-beacon... More

Considering all the towers and steeples you can climb whilst travelling around Europe, this one is refreshing for its authenticity. The circular stairs are as is, and perhaps as they were years ago. They are clean and safe, but definitely a bit cramped, and watch your head. The views are good, although someone fell a few years ago, and they... More

The view is fantastic once you reach the top, but its hell getting to the top. The stairs inside are very steep, and its a tight squeeze. theres no rail but a rope to hold onto while going up and down the stairs. I was going up the stairs while people are trying to go down, and its just a... More

I bumped my had not once but twice here, but what great view of the city and the inside details of a great church tower. Visit here first to get your bearings, then visit the square below. Great way to start a tour of Groningen.

Although the tower was narrow and stairs were steep, the climb was manageable. The view of Groningen at the top of the tower was very pretty. Narrow place to walk but with a nice cool breeze and 3 euros, it was worth it. :)
