It turns out that you no longer can get coins at the VVV to climb up the Martinitoren . You now can only reserve on-line. There are a few tours a day with limited capacity, so it is necessary to reserve timely, especially if you want to go up in the weekend. We got a time slot for 10 am on Sunday morning. It was early and bad weather. However still worth doing the climb. The tour guide explains about the tower at the various stops during the climb (255 steps), which was interesting. We recommend a visit.

I think there are around 250 steps to get to the top. Going up is probably not the safest, the same stairs you're going up, others are going down and there isn't any railing either, just a rope that's dangling. The top is a very nice view of the city. I think it's around 3 euros per person, and you buy the ticket at the tourist information office across the street.

absolute top class experience! Guided with all COVID precautions the walk up and down with the stops in between was fantastic! The guide did an excellent job with nice anecdotes and history telling. At a bright day, we were lucky!, the view is breathtaking and you see quite a large part of "de Ommelanden".

Enjoyed our visit of the Martinitoren - seeing the tower bells and hearing the carillon play while being close to the tower clocks and enjoying a great view of the city was definitely worthwhile. 261 steps up, but it's very feasible with two stops on the way up.

Groningen is certainly underrated... if you do get a chance to visit, don’t miss out on climbing the 260-stairs all the way to the top! There are some breaks along the way, fortunately! After the first 60 to 80 steps, there is an alcove with a small exhibition on the tower bells. Do you have some upper body strength? Try ringing the big bell! After another 80 to 100 steps, you get to see all the bells of the tower up close. There is also a touch screen facility that shows the names and pitches for each bell. After a little bit further up, you reach the top with panoramic views on the city of Groningen. There are sign posts in each direction that caption the buildings you can spot in the distance. After catching your breath, start making your way back down the spiral staircase 😊 tickets for the tower can be purchased at the Tourist Information centre

One of my favourite things to do in Groningen. Narrow spiral staires with 266 steps. On the way up there are several areas where you can view different floors with interesting displays. One of my favourite floors was the display of the fabulous bells. Each of the bells had names such as Agnes and Walburg and the weight of the bells was listed. Also loved the floor where the mini bells were displayed and you could press the levers to hear the sound of each bell. The views from the top of the tower were wonderful. There was a great photo opportunity of the tower clock from the inside.... Definitely worth the climb.

buy a coin at vvv and start to climb.
its a nearo and long climb but it can be done in 3 stages and on all stages something to see or do.
then go down and visit the places you spotted from up there.

The climb up the tower is not too stressing. Different floors offer insights in the mechanics of the bells and clocks. Once at the top, ou are rewarded with splendid views of Groningen.

I loved this activity in Groningen! Really interesting history as you go up the tower with English used alongside Dutch. Loved how the tower layout meant it never felt like loads of steps as there was a stop point with something to look at each time. The bells were great and the view at the top was beautiful. Totally worth it!

Excellent way to get an outstanding view of the entire city!! Wonderful breeze when you get to the top of the tower and cool throughout the walkway to the top of the tower.
