What can I say? I love towers and climbing stairs:) This one has ~320 stairs and once you are at the top, the view is gorgeous. There are some maps allowing you to better understand what you see.

Climbing the stairs were a challenge but the guide stopped regularly to share lots of information in English and French, which allowed us to prepare for the next lot. The views were definitely worth it.

You have to take 300+ steps (not that many right?) to reach the top and it's worth it. Very nice view over the city and all it's little roofs. You have to make a reservation/ buy tickets in advance. We had to pay only €3...More

There are many interesting facts to learn walking up the tower. I noted that although the guide could translate some limited things in English, if you do not speak French you miss a lot. The views are super as well as seeing the colored tile...More

There are a lot of stairs, and I have pretty bad knees. Thankfully, the guide stopped at several points on the way up which helped. Once at the top, though, wow! Thankfully, it was a super clear day and the views were terrific.

If you're ready to climb up to the tower, you'll have an amazing lookout on the whole city of Dijon from the top. It's worth climbing there. You need to book in advance at the tourist office though.

Nice short tour of the tower. You will learn about the city dukes and some history. Be prepared to climb many stairs. The view on top is spectacular.

Excellent place to visit, very nice guide. Amazing when the weather is good: we can then have a view of Dijon and its several churches all around. And the guide could tell us everything about each place we wanted to have more information about.
