Climbing the steps will certainly tire you out but the view over Amersfoort is a rewarding sight. It is not open all the time though.

It is an awfully long way up and a awfully long way down. One has to be quite fit to get up and down. If you can't climb the tower there is still interest at the bottom. A laser marks the point at which it...More
