I did not feel like climbing all those steps, but I think it might be worth it, to get some nice shots over the city, specially if the weather is good.

It was a sunny but windy morning as we began our guided foot tour of Middelburg. Our Guide was a former Historian with a real passion for this quaint city. Not far from the Town Center he took us to an Catholic Abbey that had...More

It is an old Abbey with a great yard surrounded by walls; get inside and you will have nice moments discovering art works.

Climbing the stairs of this tower is really worth it! You'll get a great view over Middelburg and its surroundings.

Nice views from the top, and the bell is amazing. If this was somewhere else, though, I probably wouldn't have done it. It was something to do to help pass the time. They give you information about it, but the only language choices are in...More

There is no outside gallery here, just an inside panoramic viewing room with windows so dirty that it is very hard to enjoy the normally excellent views

Great way finder since you can see this from anywhere in town. Beautiful tower with great views though they aren't reliable opening for admission on time.

Lots of steps but worth it! Stunning view... upstairs will be a round bench one might need after "climbing" upstairs. Don't wear loose shoes as steps may vary a lot due to the buildings age. It's also helpful to not meet somebody on those stairs...More
