The original building was built around 1425 as part of the original fortifications. Louis Zimmer donated a clock. This clock displays may thing besides the time in different locations there is time of the tides and phases of the moon. Quite marvelous. Definitely a must to see.

One of the Touristic highlights of the beatiful town of Lier. The tower is located on a cozy square with quite a number of pubs and food serving localities.

medieval tower with a place needs a fun, slightly cheesy, clock. Spend a few minutes having a look and then sit down on the canal and get a beer, or a coffee, at the wonderful café next to it. Its Belgium so the beer, and the coffee, won't disappoint.

A quick stop off, to look, and wonder how did we ever cope before things like this came along. Lots of near by cafes to sit and drink and look at the tower.
