I climbed the Martinitoeren and it was kind of an adventure, due to the little steps and the big amount of them. I was a little out of breathe but it is part of the experience. Seeing the beautiful city from above is priceless.

Climbing up to the Martinitower in Groningen was fun activity during a lovely Sunday afternoon. The weather was sunny and clear so you could see very far. The view is absolutely beautiful and you can get a better idea about the city.

When you hear Groningen, it is always associated with Martini Tower or Martinitoren. It is the most important landmark of the city. I recommend climbing to the top of the tower if the weather is good. It is very tiring because of the many stairs but it is worth doing so. The view up there is amazing! You will see... More

The Martini Tower is one of the most prominent structures in the city center of Groningen. Architecturally, it is a beautiful sight to behold. It is possible to go all the way up to the top, for a fee.

It is a good way to get a nice view of Groningen at a not foggy day, otherwise it is not worth it! Also a lot of stairs (duh) and too narrow and steep so you have to be careful and fit!!

For a small fee (€3) you can climb the tower. If you're lucky and you have a clear view, you can see the wide surroundings of Groningen! You need to be of good health to climb the stairs, you have the opportunity to see the tower both from the inside as well as a tour on the outer circle. Great... More

For only € 5 you can climb up this almost 100m high tower, which is an important landmark in the city. Inside you can see the big church bells from up close and you can even swing on one of the ropes. From upstairs you have a great 360 degree view over the city. Entrance fee is around € 5... More

Offers a nice piece of history and a great view over Groningen. Stairs are pretty narrow and maybe difficult to climb.
