Martini Tower

After 500 years, the skyline of Groningen is still determined by the Martini tower. This 97 meter high tower can also be climbed. From the tower you have a beautiful view of the city.

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 until thirty minutes before closing time.
