Martini Tower

During a visit to the center of Groningen, the Martinitoren is not to be missed. For centuries, D'Olle Grieze has overlooked the city with the Grote Markt at its feet.

Take a look

In the last 500 years, the Martinitower 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.
