this is definitely a great deal. For a small fee of a few euros you can climb up the 100 meter tower to see a 360 view of the city above the residential skyline. It is definitely worth it.

Climbing along the narrow stairs to the middle almost 100 meter high tower is a experience in it's own. It offers you a good view of the city.

Outside and in, this tower is a beauty. It costs only a few euros to climb up to the top and get a great view of the city. The climb is not strenuous, although it can make you a little dizzy, but it's all well worth it.

Climb all the stairs to the top of the tower to see Groningen, it is really worth the effort. Nice little thing that happend to us was to meet a lady who had been to tower ca 60 ears ago when she was a kid. She told us exciting history what they did then. This extra made the tower more... More

The tower was fun to climb up and we were able to get a good view of Groningen and to appreciate how big the city is. The outside area felt very safe and is suitable for younger children.

when you are in Groningen taking the steps on the Martinitoren is a must when you are able to climb all the steps. It is a little bit narrow because people are coming from above when you climb up. Once you arrive you have a beautiful view all around Groningen; when it is nice weather you can even see Delfzijl;... More

It is a good way to get to know Groningen better. It is fun to go up.. but you dont miss anything if you dont. It has a really nice 360 view of Groningen, windy, but worth it. Make sure you dont try to go up if its bad weather, or you wont be able to enjoy at all

Very nice atmosphere in a typical old Dutch cityscape. Groningen is a very vivit universitycity with a great cultural life in and around the old centre of the city. The Martinitoren is it's landmark.

The stairs are steep and there's lots of them, that's for sure - what I found more challenging, however, was that they are so narrow and there's not much space, especially whenever you cross someone going the opposite direction. The view from the top, however, makes it definitely well worth it!
