A great spot from where to get some terrific views of the city. Going to the top might prove a bit of a challenge for some people, but for those who are fit enough to ascend the long flight of stairs it should prove to...More

Hi, unfortunately the self tour did not allow anyone to see the bells at the top of the Belfry during the bell ringing...you can only see the huge drum that activates the bells to a certain arrangement/tune.
