“Magnificent views”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

If the weather is on your side, this is the place to visit. Fantastic views for miles across Lille. Bad weather would not be a good time to go up the 300+ stairs (but there is a lift for 200 or so steps) but in the fine weather, you could not get a better place to go. The staff were very helpful and cheerful and it costs €6 each. Well worth it in the right conditions.

“Beautiful Views!!”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

I never miss an opportunity to take in panoramic views and get a higher view of the cities I visit!! I truly enjoyed the views from the top of the Beffroi and recommend a visit here! The big advantage of the Beffroi is that should you want to avoid climbing so many stairs, there is an elevator inside (only after you do climb the first 100 stairs) that will take you the remaining journey to the top! Was nice to not have to walk down once I opted to climb to the top!

“Amazing views of the city”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

So glad we stumbled upon this. A wedding is taking place when we were there as it is connected to the court house. Only can take elevator up or down, not both included in ticket. I was having knee issues that day so was disappointed.

“Lille from above.”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

One of the few places open on a Sunday (shuts for a 2 hour lunch!!). Walked up and down the stairs (you go up some 300+ steps) but the view is well worth the effort. Reasonable entrance fee and you can see why it is so highly rated as a tourist attraction.

“What a view”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

There are lots of steps involved in seeing the Belfroi view, but they are worth it! 120 steps to get to the lift and 300 plus more on your way down as they encourage you to walk back down ands see various view points. The views are great but once you have seen it from the top the rest is ordinary and you would be better off catching the lift back down.
