Martini Tower

Due to the current developments regarding the Corona virus, the Martini Tower will be closed on Friday 13 March until further notice.

Take a look

In the last 500 years, the Martinitoren tower has endured fire and lightning, and has nearly collapsed. Wars have been won and lost on its steps, but the tower has stood firm and, at 97 metres, it is still the highest building in the city. Climb the tower to experience some tangible history and a stunning view. 

Tickets can be bought at the Groningen Store in Forum Groningen until thirty minutes before closing time. Bad weather conditions may cause the tower to remain closed. Do you want to make sure the tower's open? Call the Groningen Store (Tourist Information Office) at +31 (0)50-3139741. 

The Martinikerk has different opening hours. Go to the Martinikerk website for up-to-date information.

Guided tours
The tower can be climbed outside opening hours under the supervision of a tower-keeper. For more information, call the Groningen Store (VVV Tourist Information Office) at: +31 (0)50-3139741.
