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.

Awesome time looking at the view from the tower and ringing the church bell!:) A lot of steps to climb.

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.

It took us some time to figure out the tickets need to be bought at the tourist office across the street. After figuring this out we climbed the stairs and could admire Groningen from a different viewpoint. Since it is a law in Groningen that nothing can be higher than this tower the view is not obstructed by skyscrapers. This... More

This is a nice place to visit when it's sunny and clear. You have a great view of the city. The stairs are very tight, so it's difficult to go up or down when there's people coming the other way. You have to pay 3 eur to go up, and you buy the coin in the touristic center at Grote... More

To go inside you'll have to buy the coin for 3 euros from the vvv building accross the Martini tower (at the grote markt). The stairs are quite the challenge and also kinda narrow. When you finally arrive at the top you can see a very nice 360 view of Groningen. From this point you can still go up where... More

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
