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

This beautiful Abbey Tower of Long John is situated right on the centre of Middelburg and is a great place from where to view the town. It is easy to spot from anywhere in the town.

Both in the climb of the 207 steps and the panoramic view. With no stopping places this climb can't really be taken in phases

A steep climb with many stairs, but not all the way to the top. We ended up almost on the top, as the last section of stairs was not available (and never is, I would think). There was little exposition, but the most impressive thing...More
