When you put your coin in (you pay 3 euros for it at the tourist info center across the street), move through the.silver bars right away or they'll lock again! The view is great, but the close bars all around make it hard to take a picture if you're vertically challenged. Steps are a good workout, and they have some... More

The stairs is a work out but its definitely worth it. You can see the whole city from the top! Very nice helpful staff too and the bells are fun too!

There is a slightly challenging climb of about 300 steps and no lift. The highlight is the view of the city and the main square. There are a few exhibits which gives an excuse to catch your breath during the climb.

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.

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
