Climbing the tower of Sint Jan’s Cathedral


Your guide will show you during the ascent of the tower various points of interest: the belfry, the clock mechanism and an exhibition showing the history, the construction and restoration of the tower. After a stiff  climb using small age-old stairs you will reach a height of 43 meters and be rewarded with a magnificent view of not only the city center and on a clear day the surrounding villages for miles around.
