It is hard to miss the tower which is part of the Westerkerk and easily viewed from the canal if you are doing a boat tour or if you heading towards the Anne Frank house.

It's a short 30 minutes activity: you climb bunch of stairs, hear a bit about the history of the place and finally enjoy a great view. I think it was 8euro p.p. We had fun.
