Narrow already in the upper outer area but beautiful views of a really charming city from its heart. More than recommended. Children's saddles can be left in the locker without a problem.
Climbing the tower stairs is enjoyable and tiring. The view up top is worth the work to get up but I found the price a little high — 8 Euros. more »
The view from the tower is spectacular. You can see whole Gent city from the tower. It's worth it
We took the lift up but then walked down. What a place. Something at each level to see. They could improve the explanations and the subtitles about the Bell did not always work when telling the story but we got the general idea.
