It is a climb, but once you're on top, it was totally worth the effort! You have a magnificent view over the old city centre of Groningen, with the big market at the foot of the tower and other markets and streets clearly visible. The attraction improves when the weather does, because the view improves with nice weather

Save yourself some time and go to the tourist office first to get an enterence coin. That is just opposite of the tour.

I visited the church during the beer festival so much of the interior was obscured by stalls and a lot of people but from what I could make out inside, it looked quite nice. The tower was quite impressive but the climb to the top is quite an effort.

The view is really great from the first floor. You can see the hospital, the university, the mayors house, the theater and many other important buildings. The only thing that I disliked is the stairs. They are too tight and small and I got dizzy as I was walking up.

I'm usually not one for raving about lookout points, but I do think that the Martinitoren in Groningen is special. There are a few nice resting/viewing points on the way to the top and you can try to make a bell chime by pulling a rope (a lot more difficult than it looks). The view is interesting, but the climb... More

Good views and interesting visit, but it cost 3 euros and the church was closed, quite unnecessarily.

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
