Nice attraction with stunning views giving a good prospective of Middleburg itself, well worth the effort in the climb reasonably priced.

Apart from NOT being a college, which is now unusually placed in The Stadhuis named The Roosevelt University ( part of the Utrecht University) The Abbey and its surrounding buildings reminds us of Oxford 's Abbeys and Universities in small outlay. An absolute real must to walk alround and visit, which cannot be missed.

Beautiful views, forgot my bag upstairs. Considered it gone, but after a quick phone call the organ player was willing to throw it out the window.

I was a little disappointed with this tower, but I think I might have had too high expectations. One does see, large areas of the Walcheren island from the tower.

Views of all great Towns/Villages in Zeeland. Vlissingen, Domburg, Veere and lots more. Not to mention the centre of Middelburg, with all it greatness, which I only recently truly discovered on my recreational stay here.

Actually one cannot climb up the full tower. One can only go up until a certain height (around 200 steps up). The view from the tower is nice but not great. One can get better views from other towers in the Netherlands. Overall, I would say this attraction can be skipped during your visit to Middelburg.

On the way climbing to the top of the Long Jan I was thinking if it did worth it. Well if you will ever be here, take the time and the effort.

A nice peaceful place in the heart of the city. Everywhere we can find signs giving information about the monument.
