Martini Tower

Martini Tower

During a visit to the center of Groningen, the Martinitower is not to be missed.

The locals gave it the name D'Olle Grieze (The Old Grey One).


Climb the MartiniTower

This tower has overlooks the city with the Grote Markt at its feet and has a long history of endurance.

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.
