“So old yet so precise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

When one considers the age and complexity of Mr. Zimmer's creation, one just cannot be anything but impressed or amazed. Well worth the outing, especially if combined with the béguinage, town square and other fun bits to see. all in easy walking distance too.

“Gorgeous!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

Simply beautiful landmark! This exceptional tower gives the center of Lier warmth and character. This heritage building is lovely, and so nice to looks at when sitting at one of the many cafes in the area.

“Brings back childhood memories..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

A smaal but beautifull building like from a fairytale. If i remember well you can climb the tower. It is in the centre of Lier, a small town with good cafes and restaurants, so certainly worth a visit. Remember to try the 'Lierse vlaaikes' local pastry.
